Children's Book Review: Read All About It!
Read All About It!
Written by: Laura Bush and Jenna Bush
Illustrated by: Denise Brunkus
Published by: HarperCollins Publishers, 2008
First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter, Jenna, team with illustrator Denise Brunkus for this story, in which a young boy and his friends are swept up in a mysterious adventure that lands them in a most unexpected place. Full color.
* I was very curious to read a children's book written by the former First Lady and one of her daughters. In this story Tyrone Brown dislikes one thing about school....reading. That is until "visitors" start appearing in the classroom during storytime. After his teacher finishes the stories and the "visitors" (characters) disappear he goes on an adventure to find them. This book was a little unrelatable for my kids since they both love reading and listening to stories. However, I like the idea presented in this book that characters in books come to life and the boy who hates reading realizes that maybe he doesn't after all!
