Winner of the 2013 Certificate of Recognition for Literary and Artistic Achievement. Dedicated to simple yet developmentally stimulating icons and experiences of childhood, this series encourages children to have fun discovering the world through the real world rather than through screen-based media. This celebration of books lists the joys of turning pages to discover letters, words, friends, places, and imagination. Whether it's adventure time, story time, or bedtime, this book is sure to inspire togetherness as well as the next generation of readers and wordsmiths.


“Hutton's charming little board book, the newest in a series, encourages young children to explore the pleasures of real books with real pages. Gentle, joyful encouragement for young readers and pre-readers to discover the rewards of a good book.”  —Kirkus Reviews
