[REVIEW] I Hate Picture Books!

Title: I Hate Picture Books!
Author/Illustrator: Timothy Young
Publisher: Schiffer Publishing
ISBN-13: 9780764343872
Pages: 32
Age Range: Early Reader; Ages 5-8.

Blurb: Max hates his picture books and he’s throwing them all away. But he soon learns just how invaluable imagination is and has a change of heart. Find out why in this outrageous book that both pokes fun at and celebrates many of the classics of children’s literature. Join writer and illustrator Timothy Young for this irreverent and humorous story ideal for children and adults alike.

Review: This was a sweet book about a boy who doesn’t want to keep his picture books anymore. So he throws them all away. It doesn’t take long, however, until he starts to miss them and how they made him feel.

I really liked this. It has nice pictures and pays homage to many classic picture books. The language is accessible and fits the age range.

I recommend this to parents who want their children to grow up with a fondness for reading – picture books or otherwise. Read more on the book's home page.

Rating: 4 bookshelves out of 5.
