“What are you doing?” asked Chepito.
“Reading the paper,” answered the big man.
“Why, why, why?” sang Chepito.
“To see who won the game, of course.”

* * *

Chepito ran all the way home from school. He went in the door and sat down on a chair. He pulled a book out of his bag.
“What are you doing?” said his mother.
“I’m reading a book,” answered Chepito.

By Arie Farnam on July 10, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Unclear illustrations. Boring topic for kids. It doesn't effectively motivate. It yet another book adults want kids to like. It tries to show all the ways that we can use reading but it is like a list, rather than a story. There is little to grab a young and unenthusiastic reader.

Format: Hardcover
A timeless tribute to the joys of reading. The library of every budding booklover, and his or her parents, is incomplete without it.
