"April Jones Prince presents these related skills with a spirit of joyful adventure. . . . Christine Davenier's pictures here are, as ever, a treat: With lively lines and delicious dappled watercolors, they radiate coziness and good cheer."--The Wall Street Journal

★ "This cleverly designed picture book is actually two rhyming stories, bound back to back. The stories meet in the middle in a page with text printed in a circle that repeats the mantra that "readers and writers and writers are readers." This innovative design reinforces the book's central ideas: that reading and writing go together and that, fundamentally, every child is capable of creativity. . . . Taken together, the text and pictures articulate a quirky, inspirational call to creative action that is sure to empower young children to explore the wild world of words. A cleverly designed, engaging picture book about the joy of text." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Rhyming text in an upbeat, singsong-y rhythm winds through soft spot art, cheering on new readers and writers in this two-books-in-one picture book. The effective format celebrates becoming a reader on one side and becoming a writer on the flip side."--The Horn Book

"The reading portion of the book inspires children to keep going despite difficult words that come their way. The writing portion sympathizes with the fact that it can be difficult to find the right words. . . . What a marvelous book to have on the shelves, for wannabe writers or to inspire children to think about the words they choose to use."--School Library Journal
