The Reading Promise by Troy Kent is an adorable story of Daniel and his mother, Katherine, who used all her money to buy food and clothes for the baby. She felt sad knowing she could not buy any fancy clothes and toys for her son. Katherine joined a public library and she made a promise to Daniel that she would read aloud to him every day. When Daniel grew up, he loved reading more than anything else. Daniel became an adult, lost his mother, got married, and had a child of his own. He found the first book that his mother had read out to him and he did the same thing his mother did to him; he began reading books aloud to his little daughter.
It's a heartwarming story that shows a special bond between Katherine and Daniel, and how she weaves into his mind the importance of reading books and how the circle of life continues when Daniel has a daughter. The illustrations are lively, vivid, and give a good pace and movement to the story. It will make an excellent bedtime storybook and can be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The book captures the struggles and financial hardships of a mother beautifully and also the importance of spending quality time together, and a mother's love and devotion. This story will touch the hearts of readers and this story will encourage children to enjoy the reading experience.
