Mom, Dad, Our Books and Me in The New York Times

Danielle Marcotte and Josée Bisaillon‘s beautiful book about books, Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me, has received a great review in the April 10th issue of The New York Times!

Mom, Dad, Our Books, and MeGorgeous and sophisticated, this book doesn’t just preach about the importance of reading — it shows a world in which reading is all around, woven into life in many interesting ways. A fisherman “reads the sky”; a doctor “reads a thermometer.” And the little boy who narrates, a proud new reader, revels in his new solidarity with his parents, relatives and neighbors, who like to be immersed in words. Bisaillon’s art strikes just the right readerly tone, somehow both moody and cheerful.

Other praise for Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me:
“A combination of collage, paint, and crayon illustrations offer detailed views of this family’s many reading scenarios…philosophically astute.”—Kirkus Reviews
“The many forms and ways of reading are joyously celebrated in Mom, Dad, Our Books, and Me.”—Foreword Reviews
“A contemplative and poetic reflection on the pleasures of story.”—Quill & Quire
“A librarian’s dream.”—School Library Journal
