How can Leopold, goat and bookstore owner, find the perfect book for a fellow goat—one the visitor will enjoy reading, not munching?

Leopold the goat owns a delightful bookstore, and he has a talent for matching his customers with the ideal book—an adventure story for the girl in the rain boots, a novel about gnomes for the man who loves to laugh, and a book of birds for the woman in the feathered hat. But one day, another goat arrives and proceeds to eat every book Leopold offers. Can Leopold find just the right one to tempt this reluctant reader? This funny, charming tale of the transformative power of books is a celebration of that first special story that sparks a child’s love of reading.

Books Aren't for Eating is a fun and creative book about the joys of reading.
The illustrations are absolutely delightful! I loved the goats and their different expressions. They pair so well with this story!

I love the hidden message of trying different books until you find the right fit for you, especially with young children who sometimes find reading boring - or adults that could never find one to hold their interest.

Books Aren't for Eating is a wonderful addition to anyone's library.

I adore books about books especially when the story involves finding the book that makes you fall in love with reading.
There is a goat named Leopold who owns a bookstore that humans usually visit. He loves to recommend books to his customers that he knows they will enjoy. Leopold is delighted when a fellow goat comes into the store but soon learns this goat likes to eat books instead of reading them. Book after book he just chomps them up. That is until Leopold shares with him a special book.

I love the message of trying different books until you find the one for you. The illustrations are charming and pair perfectly with this sweet story.

Book lovers will appreciate this story and the message that "some books are just too good to eat."
