All three of my kids, ages 13, 11 and 8, delighted in this clever picture book with a book-within-a-book-within-a-book format. I figured if this picture book could captivate a teenager, it has a lock on all younger kids.
I only wish the pages were a tad more sturdy because this is a book that is going to be used. Little hands will want to open up each page by themselves to discover all the creatures who are enjoying reading a book.
PickyKidPix thinks that this picture book is equal parts wonderful due to both the talented illustrator and author! I tried to argue that it was more the illustrator that makes this book so great but she disagreed. She loves Suzy Lee’s wordless picture book Wave and noted that Suzy could illustrate in so many different styles!
There are so many subtle things to see within the book. Notice how the book covers match the animals reading them. We really liked that.
We also liked that the smallest creature had the biggest book and the biggest creature had the tiniest book too small for his hands to even open.
This is a delightful picture book that appeals to all ages. I can attest because all three of my kids loved this book.

It’s possible that this video is even more fun than reading the picture book but only because this is an amazing trailer!
