A lively ode to reading celebrates the many forms reading takes, from reading clocks and train schedules to reading facial expressions and books, and follows the observations of a little boy who also notes the myriad places where reading occurs, from park benches to bathtubs.

Reading takes many forms. Some of us read novels, while others read cookbooks, sheet music, tarot cards, or even the stars in the sky. We read clocks, train schedules, and facial expressions. In this ode to reading, each form is lovely and worth celebrating.Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me follows a young boy and those around him parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and neighbors as they all read, immersed in what moves them.

Vibrant, whimsical paper collage artwork depicts the colors and textures of the many places in which we read, from hammocks and bubble baths to park benches and waiting rooms. The diverse cityscapes and landscapes often include fanciful elements of imagination.

Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me will leave young readers reveling in this newfound or soon-to-come skill that sparks new adventures and brings people together.
