Read All About It! by Laura and Jenna Bush

Stars: *****

Summary: Tyrone rules the school! He’s king of the monkey bars, a math machine, and a science whiz. He has lots of friends and loves school. Except for one thing…Tyrone doesn’t like to read. It wouldn’t be so bad if his teacher would just get the hint. But no—every day after lunch, she whips out another book. Boring! Then one day, something really strange happens during reading time. It happens again the next day and the next and the next until story hour is the most exciting part of the day!

I checked this book out of the library myself. I love reading books about reading books or libraries and if there is a book out there designed to get children to read more, I want to know about it.

This book is really cute, showing how story books can come to life if you let them and how the library is a great place to be. It’s told by the view point of a boy which is great since boys are usually harder to get reading than girls.

The book is published by HarperCollinsCanada which has a parents section on it’s website devoted to this book. You can meet the authors, learn more about the book, find activities, tips and resources and more. Check out the Read All About It website.
