Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"Adelaide makes a convincing argument to her teacher that she doesn’t need a reading buddy because she already has one — a bear! And he’s the best buddy. Which we see in all their illustrated-reading glory!" - Imagination Soup

School Library Journal - Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

"The pattern-filled illustrations show the two buddies getting lost in their stories and demonstrates how they search for their next good read. They add a great deal to the book’s appeal. Full of useful yet subtle hints about how to make reading fun for both young and older reading buddies, this book will find a ready audience at storytime and is also wonderful for one-on-one sharing." - School Library Journal
