The Good Little Book chronicles the relationship between a boy and a book. Bored and in trouble, the boy is sent to the study where he picks up the good little book and begins to read. After hours of reading it he develops a love and appreciation for this good little book. He takes it everywhere he goes and reads it over and over again. However, tragedy strikes and the boy loses the book. When he finally finds the book in the hands of a girl, he realizes that he is ready to pass the book on to someone else because, “You see, a good little book never completely goes away.” Lively illustrations using lots of shades of red support this ode to the role that a good book can play in our lives. A fun book to read aloud to children ages 3 and up.
