A very sweet tale of a boy who loves to read books and wants more than anything for his mother to read to him. This story tackles the issue of adult literacy in a compassionate, warm and sensitive way. I enjoyed the love and connection between the mother and son. He is so sweet and caring and the mother, despite her busy schedule spends a lot of time with him. I really felt their bond.
