“Hey! Books aren’t for eating, they’re for reading!”

Most bookworms liked to dig in the mud, play in the rain, and chomp on their favorite food...BOOKS! But not Bina—she can't stand the taste of books at all. One fateful day, Bina opens a book to find a maze of letters. After a friend helps her learn how to read, Bina's faced with a big obstacle—her brothers keep eating her books! Looking for ideas in…(you guessed it!) a book, Bina cooks up a delicious solution to her problem that will leave readers hungry for more!

A fun-to-read picture book that celebrates the power of words and stories for young readers beginning to enjoy reading.


“... such a fun story...great to use when introducing reading centers in the classroom.”
