Okay, I know We Are in a Book! is a children’s book, but bear with me. IT’S ADORABLE.
My little sisters got this book about a year ago, and it is one of the only ones with which I actually support the read-over-and-over policy all little kids love (see also: hit-replay-the-second-the-TV-episode-ends). This book captures the novelty, joy, and childishness of reading. And it’s unique. And cute.
The whole Elephant and Piggy series has the same cutesy aesthetic. (I know. They came in a set.) To adults, if you have kids, buy them. To teens like me, I don’t know, find a little kid who has them. Check it out of the library. Or something. Who knows. It’s cute. It will put a smile on your face. And I think that any book that does it (especially one that is as unique and interesting as this one) is worth reading, no matter the target audience.
