Book Review/Giveaway: I Hate to Read! Ends June 16th
I Hate to Read by Rita Marshall and Etienne Delessert
About the Book: Victor Dickens hates to read, and nothing can change his mind. Or can it? How about a parrot with a peg leg? Or a rabbit with black barn boots? Or a field mouse with gold coins? Anything can happen on the whimsical, wonderful night when a little boy with a stubborn hatred of books discovers that printed words can take on lives of their own. Reissued here with a text crafted for even younger readers, I Hate to Read! won the 1993 Benjamin Franklin Award upon its original publication. http://gonereading.com/product/i-hate-to-read-by-rita-marshall/
Ages: 5 and up
My Review: Have you tried to get your child to read and they just want to do other things like play video games? Well, meet Victor Dickens a stubborn boy who wear his helmet when skateboarding, combs his hair for the class picture, like to share with his dog, Page. He is good in math and science but fails in ABCs. Victor just hates reading.
So why he was pretending to read while watching Television, some characters started to crawl out of the book. First it was a crocodile in a white coat asking him to jump into his pocket. It’s time to read said the crocodile, it’s story time. But Victor told him that he hate to read. And that’s how his adventure started with each character from the book giving Victor an invitations to encourage him to read. With each adventures, Victor started to find reading interesting as he read each page, he just hated the story to come to an end. This will be a great addition to the school and home library.
