Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me
I love it when when we’re all together:
Mom, Dad, our books, and me…
I can read now.
Like the big kids!
As a young boy revels in learning to read on his own, he begins to notice that reading is all around him… and not all of it is in books.
Told with humour, <strong>Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me</strong> is a celebration of reading in all its forms, and of the worlds it opens up to us, one story at a time.

CanLit for Little Canadians : « … Danielle Marcotte imparts an important message in an inviting story, all the better communicated with Josée Bisaillon’s collage artwork… Text and art come together strikingly in Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me to become a book that all literacy advocates i.e., everyone, should be sharing with the very young, those who can read and those who can’t, yet. »
