A stunning new picture book from Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet! This New York Times bestselling duo has teamed up for the first time to bring you How to Read a Book, a poetic and beautiful journey about the experience of reading.

Find a tree—a

black tupelo or

dawn redwood will do—and

plant yourself.

(It’s okay if you prefer a stoop, like Langston Hughes.)

With these words, an adventure begins. Kwame Alexander’s evocative poetry and Melissa Sweet’s lush artwork come together to take readers on a sensory journey between the pages of a book.

Wildly original and highly interactive; ‘How To Read A Book,’ guides readers in a poetic, lyrical journey, to do simply that, read. 

Pages fall loose, and open to vibrant commanding pages of prose that are simple and easy to follow, but are also engaging and deep. The illustrations are lush, vivid, and startlingly eye-catching. 

This is the type of book you pass from child-to-child and generation-to-generation. An enjoyable read that you’ll want to unfold again and again.
