You’re Going to Love This Book!

Farrar. Mar. 2024. 32p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780374388539.
PreS-Gr 2–Attention, readers! John’s omniscient narrator assures readers that they will love this book, filled with action! Comedy! Homework! Homework? This laugh-out-loud tale includes decidedly unlovable things, e.g., dentists and early bedtimes. John’s hilarious questions—“Are you ready to go to sleep while it’s still light outside? Are you ready to dream about all the fun you could be having if you were still awake?”—will have readers groaning in delighted recognition, making this read-aloud gold. Tallec’s expressive kangaroo main character and comically dramatic illustrations will provide giggles for many reads to come.
VERDICT An essential book to liven up story hours.
