The Reading Promise, by Troy Kent, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
The Reading Promise is the heartwarming story of a young mother and her son, Daniel. When Daniel is just a baby, his mother doesn't have much money. She worries about being a good mother, then soon decides to make her son a promise. She realizes books at the library are free. There might not be much she can do for her son from a monetary standpoint, but she can read to him. So while he is just a baby, she vows to read to him every night. As Daniel grows up, he and his mother find countless ways to experience the world through books.
Written by Troy Kent and illustrated by Elisa Moriconi, The Reading Promise is simply wonderful. Vaguely reminiscent of Robert Munsch's Love You Forever, this children's picture book is sure to tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended for home and school libraries, The Reading Promise earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
