Beautiful book - We read it every night before bed. Oct 21, 2005
This is a perfect book to read to a child. We start our nighttime reading with this one, like an introduction. Then we read other books, then finish with Goodnight Moon. Read to Me deserves to be a classic like Goodnight Moon. It is so gentle and positive, and I love the pictures of children and babies with loving family members. I say to my six-month-old: Do you see the baby reading with his Grandad? And he pats the page and coos. This book sets such a good example -- I hope more illustrators will realize that loving families have varied appearances and cultures. Although I am a blue-eyed girl myself, it really bothers me to see children's books in which only caucasian children are represented. Read to Me celebrates and encourages family reading time. It is like a little reminder each time we read it that we are doing something special.
A jewel of a book! Nov 22, 2004
This is one of the most perfect children's book I have ever seen and I have been collecting for 27 years. (day care provider)It is beautifully illustrated with rich diversity. The words are poetic and should be read by every new parent grandparent and caregiver. I think this book should be included in every hospital kit distributed to new parents and use by every literacy program. It should definitely be in your family library.
A warm and lyrical treasure with a positive message Apr 12, 2004
Read To Me is a thoroughly delightful picture book with simple, rhyming verse by Judi Moreillon and enchanting color illustrations by Kyra Teis about the joy shared between parents, grandparents, and young ones when reading to a child. A warm and lyrical treasure with a positive message for all ages. "Read to me / and plant the seed. / Make me want / to learn to read."
