I Don't Want to Read This Book

I Don’t Want to Read This Book by Max Greenfield
Illustrated by Mike Lowery

From actor Max Greenfield (fan-favorite “Schmidt” from television’s New Girl) comes a hilarious picture book for every child who thinks they don’t like to read books (and all the kids—and grownups—who do).

Words, sentences, and even worse, paragraphs fill up books. Ugh! So what’s a reluctant reader to do? Actor Max Greenfield (New Girl) and New York Times bestselling illustrator Mike Lowery bring the energy and laugh-out-loud fun out for every child (and parent) who thinks they don’t want to read a book. Joining the ranks of favorites like The Book With No Pictures and The Serious Goose, this clever and playful read-aloud breaks the fourth wall and will have all readers coming back for laughs again and again!

Thoughts
I didn’t know about Max Greenfield until the show The Neighborhood premiered. I love this show so when I saw this book was by Greenfield, I knew I wanted to read it.

This is a funny book and is geared toward kids ages 4-8 who don’t like to read. It will hopefully show them that reading can be fun.

The illustrations are big and bold which I think makes the book very appealing. I think most children whether they like to read or not will enjoy this book. For those who don’t like to read, I hope it starts them on a lifelong love of books!

Many adults have enjoyed this book, including me.
