Will You Read My Book With Me?
🎁Recommended for ages 3 and above
Illustrated by Thiago Lopes
Antonio wants to share his favourite book with someone but everyone is too busy. He goes around the neighbourhood in his search but is disappointed, again and again. Then Antonio meets someone along the way that unexpectedly turns out to be the perfect reading companion!
Will You Read a Book With Me? is a great example of when books aren’t judged by their covers, and how friendships can blossom with the most unexpected people.
