The Best Reading Buddy is a children's picture book written by Sherry Roberts and illustrated by Marta Taylor. Sage and her grandfather are forever best reading buddies. They love reading good books, and while sometimes they sit quietly reading independently, the best moments are when they read aloud to each other. However, one day, Sage's granddad's eyes don't work like they used to, and even new glasses won't help with reading. Will Sage and her granddad have fun like they used to while reading to each other? Will they still be the best reading buddies?
This picture book is a real treat. Simple, concise, with a special dose of lightness, fun, and well-described action scenes, Sherry Roberts' The Best Reading Buddy is the ideal book for keeping a child's interest. The characters are charming and fascinating to follow. Sage's granddad is the sweetest person, and Sage is a curious little girl. There is never a dull moment whenever these two are together. Marta Taylor's lovely art immerses the reader even deeper in the moment. The images are so creative that they vividly capture Sage's and Granddad's emotions and attributes. This is more than a captivating read that will keep little ones entertained and educated with valuable life lessons, such as the value of not being afraid to ask questions about things they don't understand. This book is a clever way to inspire a positive connection to books and reading. After reading the book, Sage and Granddad's lively moments might even encourage your child to want to get creative and invent games that you can play together.
