Will you read a book with me?

Antonio wants someone to read with him, but nobody seems to have any time--not his mom, not their neighbor, and not any of his friends on the street. It's only when he looks in an unexpected place that he discovers the perfect reading partner, and a chance to make a new friend.

A celebration of the power of stories and communities, Read a Book with Me will remind audiences young and old that there's nothing to bring people together like the power of a good book.


"This sweet, unassuming, child-friendly, award-winning book touches lightly on a disability. It is the child hero's complete and nonchalant acceptance of the old man's blindness that gives the book its powerful punch. Bravo!"
—Jane Yolen, author of Owl Moon and the How Do Dinosaurs books
"'Will you read a book with me?' Every child who opens these covers will want to do just that!"
—Marion Dane Bauer, author of The Stuff of Stars
