Book Review: A Book is a Book by Jenny Bornholdt

Books can be true and not true and sometimes they can be both at the same time.

A book belongs in a library, on a bookshelf, in a bookshop, in your house.

A story belongs wherever a story belongs.

If it’s Sunday and raining, a book is the perfect thing. Even a small book, because boredom can be very big.

This is a book about books. Each page shares a new insight into the magic of books and the joys of reading. 'Told' from a child's view, it is sure to appeal to young and old alike.

Sarah Wilkins' illustrations are simple and sweet - a perfect match for the whimsical and humorous text.

There are so many choice bits of wisdom that I can relate to, but my favorite line would have to be:

If you need to get around your room without touching the floor, books are good. You should only use your biggest, worst books for this game.

Does anyone else remember playing that game as a child? We used soft toys and pillows instead of books.

This is truly a book for book lovers of all ages to enjoy and it is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
