This picture book is designed to be read to young children, read together with young children, and read independently by young children. The repetitive sentence starter "I like books" provides a degree of predictability as well as a positive view of books. The topic for each page is relevant to young children and/or provides a stimulus for asking questions and finding out new information. The illustrations assist with making meaning of the simply worded text, and provide a backdrop for each page that is bound to spark children's imaginations. The selection of the two characters ensures that there is a gender balance as well as representation from both Caucasian and Asian backgrounds. The rhyming of the last word in each line acts as a reading prompt and can also be used to brainstorm additional rhyming words. In this way, the book is also suitable as a reader for students in countries in which English is not the first language.

Chapter One

I like books that start with Once upon a time ...

I like books that have words which rhyme,

I like books that have lift-up flaps,

I like books that have pirate maps!

I like books with wizards and witches,

I like books with colourful pictures!

I like books that tell me lots,

I like books with dot-to-dots!

I like books with a man of steel,

I like that are quite unreal!
