Just Read! is a celebration of reading, which demonstrates that reading can be done anywhere, everywhere, and invites fantasy in even the most unlikely places.
The title sums up the book nicely. Every page is dedicated to the act of reading, and young listeners are taken through a colorful and exciting display of how versatile reading can be. Following a gentle rhyme, the text flows in an easy to understand way, while still making the situations clear. The locations where a book can be read are almost as vast as the imagination—in a place, in the grocery store, in secret code or in the rain.
The illustrations are my favorite part of this book. They are vibrant and bring every scene to life. There are tons of details, both realistic and humorous. They invite for flipping through and exploring on their own, and still bring across the main message along the way.
There's no shying away from the message in these pages—read. This makes it a lovely book to read aloud to classrooms, library readings or other groups of kids, since it does inspire reading and show demonstrate how wonderful and fun it can be.
I received a complimentary copy and loved diving into these pages.
Just Read! by Lori Degman with illustrations by Victoria Tentler-Krylov is a charming celebration of the joy to be found in reading and an enthusiastic reminder of the amazing ways in which readers are able to explore a world outside their own. “I read things that scare me or cause me to grin. I read about places where I’ve never been.”
An energetic rhyming text enumerates the many times, places, and ways in which diverse characters find opportunities to read. “I read with my fingers across bumpy lines. I read with my voice or my hands, using signs.”
Vibrant colors and an abundance of detail make the watercolor illustrations “pop” and invite readers to look closer as words conjure images for each young book-lover. I girl holds a book on code-breaking in one hand while she uses her other fingers to draw Morse code on a steamy window. A boy with a guitar searches through sheet music and song books.
Recommended as a fun addition to home and school libraries.
