A beautiful ode to the joy of books.— Rae Ann
A new book is
fresh ink on crisp pages
the words inside
just waiting to be read.
An incredible journey begins for every person who turns the pages. Together, book and reader make a special kind of magic—a magic that’s even sweeter when you share it!

"Children will find much to engage them in the gorgeous gouache and colored pencil illustrations, with dreamy pink and orange trees, yellow houses, and floaty spirals and swirly symbols flowing out of the book indicating the 'magic.' The cast of characters is a lively mix of ethnic backgrounds."
— School Library Journal
"This timely story for book lovers of all ages captures the spirit of connection between book and reader. . . Graceful illustrations project an atmosphere of positivity."
"In a paean to literature, reading, and choice, a purple book with a yellow star ends up in the hands of different readers. . . Colorful, detailed illustrations show a diverse cast engaging with the book in school, at home, and around nature."
