A stunning new picture book from Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and Caldecott Honoree Melissa Sweet, this bestselling duo has teamed up for the first time to bring you How to Read a Book, a poetic and beautiful journey about the experience of reading.

    So get
    real cozy
    the covers
    And let your
    fingers wonder
    as they wander. . .

With these words, an adventure begins. Kwame Alexander's evocative poetry and Melissa Sweet's lush artwork come together to take readers on a sensory journey between the pages of a book.

"[This] love poem to literacy conjures up startling, luscious images. . . By turns dreamy and ecstatic." — Publishers Weekly
