How to Read a Book
Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet take us on a poetic and beautiful journey between the pages of a book in this picture book.
The text of this book is a poem, and the book will feature a gatefold page!

dawn redwood will do—and
(It’s okay if you prefer a stoop, like Langston Hughes.)
With these words, an adventure begins—an adventure into the world of reading. Kwame Alexander’s evocative poetry and Melissa Sweet’s lush artwork come together to take you on a sensory journey between the pages of a book.
