Rhatigan’s picture book for children on the delights of reading is quite the treasure. I read this with my cubs. While all enjoyed it (including this oversized bookworm), it is really geared to younger ages. Beautiful artwork dominates, showing snippets from all kinds of tales. It was rather neat to recognise some, like Moby Dick.
We follow, through rhyming verse, a little boy who LOVES to read. He sounds very like me when I was a wee cubling, and how some of mine are now. Even today, I always have a book to hand.
????? Highly recommended. A definite jewel to brighten any children’s shelf
