The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers

The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers was published in 2006, and I was lucky enough to find a copy in a local little free library. This book even has a bite mark cut out of the back the cover as part of its design.

Henry is a little boy who loves books so much that he eats them. He finds that when he eats books, he becomes smarter. His brain absorbs whatever knowledge is in the book.

He starts eating more and more books with an unfortunate result. The pictures depicting the result are fun. He learns that he can read books and still gain knowledge without any bad side effects.

This book is a must have for the book lover in your life.

I  received another package from the family of Liam and for whatever reason, these packages seem to come on the day I need them most. These darling board books came from Jason and Lori Krause.

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
