Well, why don’t we read books to owls, anyway? “Because they’ll keep asking…whooo????” A boa constrictor might want to hug you good night, and a hippopotamus might want to sit on your lap. These funny examples will entertain and educate, and lead logically to the heart-warming conclusion: the best people to read to are your mom and dad, and “it will be the best story that they’ve ever heard.” Königslöw’s spare text is funny and direct, and set off by her whimsical illustrations. It’s easy to imagine a pre-schooler getting inspired to create his or her own jokes about reading to animals. For ages two to five.
