Artworks and text convey the pleasures of reading. My students enjoy drawing pictures of themselves reading in favorite or unusual spots after viewing this book. Two other books by Raczka I recommend even more highly are Unlikely Pairs and Art Is (neither is in the SPL collection as of this writing). Unlikely Pairs brings together artworks that are unalike in style and content, but that "complete" each other in often humorous ways. A child blowing bubbles on one page: a Kandinsky painting of circles (bubbles) on the adjoining page, for instance. Art Is stretches children's ideas of the forms art can take.
