Sometimes just the right words can open up a world of discovery! That is how a little old shop keeper touched Isaac. Great text and illustrations with references to the New York City library.

Do you remember what book inspired your love of reading?

Isaac isn't interested in much of anything! His parents share their love of reading and learning new things with their son, but Isaac does not feel compelled to pick up a book (even after visiting the majestic New York Public Library)! This all changes when a shopkeeper tells him the tale of the book of gold! A fabulous read-aloud to share with the family.

“There is a legend that somewhere in the world there is one very special book that’s just waiting to be discovered. It will look like any other book, but it holds all the answers to every question ever asked, and when it is opened, it turns to solid gold. “
