Hooray for Books!
When Turtle cannot find his favorite book, he checks with all his friends to find out who has it. Most are willing to offer him their favorite books, but Turtle insists his is the best—until he realizes that sharing stories is the best thing of all.
Hooray for Books! is a jubilant celebration of reading. The excitement of all the characters to share their favorite books is contagious, and readers will be unable to help but smile as they follow Turtle and his band of fellow bookworms to locate his favorite book. Somehow author Brian Won manages to keep the quest uplifting and positive, and Turtle’s initial lack of interest in other characters’ favorite books never comes across as mean. When he finds his book, readers are genuinely pleased.
Bold illustrations in punchy colors add to the appeal of the story. The clean white backgrounds help the action and characters stand out, as well as the text. A great choice for young readers and their parents.
