THE AWARD-WINNING COLLABORATORS of theNew York Times#1 picture book bestsellerWild About Booksare back with a new story that promotes books and reading. Told in Judy Sierra’s inimitable read-aloud rhyme, the narrative chronicles the amazing successes of Sam—thanks to his early love of books. The story ranges from Sam’s infancy, when his mother reads him a picture book (“then another, then another, then another . . . such a perfect, patient mother”), to school age, when he cleverly uses some of his favorite books to rid his town of the rampaging baby giant, Grundaloon. “‘Here’s my secret,’ Sam decreed. ‘Readers win and winners read.’” Marc Brown’s playful pictures joyously complement this fun-to-read, upbeat story

Great Book

User Review  - barbosa1860 - Borders

This book I read myself. Its a great story for children who love to read. I gave this book to my seven year old brother who loves to read. He loved it because it was about reading books and the main character was named Sam just like him. Read full review
