Horn Book Review

This volume extends the Mexican celebration of El dia de los ninos (The Day of the Child) by adding books to the mix (El dia de los libros). Mora's rhymed text extols reading anywhere, anytime, and together with anyone. Lopez's rich-hued images of children reading in unexpected places (e.g., an elephant's back) and exotic locales rejoice in imagination and universality. (c) Copyright 2010.
