This is a perfect book for teachers to read to students who are starting to move out of picture books and are now reading chapter books. This book's text describes a character that doesn't want to read a book because it doesn't have any pictures, but the character figures out that words describe the picture to the reader. The pictures heavily support and add to the text- when the character says that books say "sad" things, the pictures show what the character is probably reading about. Overall, this is a great book that should be read aloud to a class of any age. Teachers should stress "Reading books without pictures shouldn't scare you off" when reading it to the class. The teacher could even read the book without showing the pictures then read it while showing the pictures.
