Reviews

"Celebrate the dazzling spectacle of reading, writing, and designing in this vaudeville romp that explores the outside, inside, intellectual side, and imaginative side of those friends we call books. Antique-style fonts and warm-toned illustrations elucidate definitions and expose the possibilities found in the world of books. From history to fantasy to guidebooks, from Jabberwocky to ""once upon a time"" to goats, this book, imbued with ecstatic enthusiasm, has it all." --ForeWord Reviews
"Books!" is a fantastic, fun, embellished and color illustrated book for children about, books! The definition is varied and complete, with side definitions of letters, words, punctuation, and the value of knowledge. The joy of page turning, deciphering images and words, and exploration of new worlds through books is vibrantly demonstrated. Fancy type with gold and pink highlighting make exciting statements about all the fun of books, finding them, reading them, sharing them, borrowing them, giving them, and keeping them." --Midwest Book Review
"Half a century later, it has been reissued in a beautiful new edition that does justice to the vision and integrity of the original a pleasure to both hold and behold, and a timeless, ever-timely celebration of books as bastions of the human spirit. Brain Pickings"
