READ ISLAND is an imaginative and lovely picture book about the joy of reading. Told in rhyme, the book invites the reader along on a trip to Read Island, a place made of books where the animals gather to hear stories. The story tells how books can take the reader on a journey to anywhere and shows a variety of animals reading and enjoying books.

What I loved: This is a beautiful and rhyming story about the joy of reading. The picture book takes the reader along to a magical place where animals can enjoy a book together. The pleasure and fun of reading is told throughout the book. The illustrations are magical with beautiful art, imaginative animals, and plenty of books. Children will love seeing the animals with their books and share in the joy of a good read. The softly rhyming text makes this a great choice for storytime or for bedtime.

Each page spread features only a few lines of text, which makes this book work well for toddlers and older picture book readers. The text is also easy to read aloud, printed in a clear font, which is also helpful for low light bedtime.

Final verdict: A lovely and imaginative story, READ ISLAND is a charming and sweet picture book about the joy of reading. Recommend for toddlers on up!
