It goes without saying that this book grabbed my attention—just look at it! Peter Carnavas’ latest is an adorable little tale of two children who, as suggested by the title, love books. Their tiny house is full of them. Their family doesn’t have much, but with so many stacks of stories, it doesn’t seem to matter!
But one day the house can hold no more. Sadly, the little family decides they must get rid of their books. When all the piles are cleared, their house is emptier and lonelier than they could have imagined.
Later, though, a book falls out of young Lucy’s backpack. The family gathers around to read together, and once again they are smitten with the power of stories. They run out to their local bookstore (indie bookseller thumbs up!) and restock. Soon their home is full of joy and love and piles and piles of beautiful books! Hooray (for books)!
Read on, readers!
