Go Read Book
Go Read is the inside story of a book written by the book itself. It is an autobiography in which the book explains to readers that they don’t need batteries or a charging cord to read this book. And that if you sit on the book it won’t crack, but you will magically grow taller.
The centerpiece is the introduction of the book’s twenty-six roommates, also known as, The Alphabet. The roommates are presented in a humorous way with funny illustrations and silly situations to showcase each member of the alphabet in a memorable way.
In the end, the book reminds readers that books sometimes get lonely sitting unopened in a pile, or on a shelf, and to remember if you want to make yourself, or a book, very happy then, Go Read.
Go Read is designed to help kids learn the alphabet in a fun-filled way and to inspire them to read. Research shows that kids who are avid readers tend to get better grades and have a better chance of being happier, healthier and more confident.
Written and illustrated by best-selling, award-winning, children’s book author and motivational speaker, Trevor Romain, Go Read is designed to be read to kids in the kindergarten age range.

"This book is uniquely written as an autobiography of the book itself, and is ideal for early emergent readers who are just beginning to understand the concepts of print and books. "Go Read" would be a great addition to any library. Its distinct style, illustrations and silly sentences make this book memorable and is sure to be a favorite."
"The main purpose of Go Read is to introduce young ones to the pleasures of reading while cultivating a reading habit. Romain tries to give a child a fun way to recognize and remember the alphabet, and he has succeeded with this writing. This book presents itself as an antidote to devices. It does not need batteries or a charger to work and is imbued with meanings. It instills more than one message to wee ones. At the ending of Go Read, Trevor introduces the idea that books can feel lonely on the shelf. He adds that reading makes both the reader and the book happy. This sets the book apart from so many others, in that it lends a license to yourself and your child to find merriment through simple means. Sidenote: your child may want to follow Trevor's advice and have you read with them under the covers with a flashlight. Fun in the bed fort! We would not expect anything different from award-winning author Trevor Romain."
