Why did we select this book?
Each year we work with a publisher to find books that are created by talented writers and artists in our state. This year we worked with the Boston publisher Candlewick Press, and they designed this beautiful book for Maine families. We make this special book because it is the final book in the Raising Readers program. We hope it sends the message that Raising Readers, the books' authors, illustrators, publishers, and, most importantly, your healthcare providers, have all enjoyed helping you raise a reader.
