Doors is much more than a book, it is an adventure for the reader through over 50 doors within its pages. My class of Pre-K children patiently waited for me to read the text, in anticipation of opening each door and were even more excited to discover doors within doors. From fire station doors to train doors, the reader will enjoy the true sense of discovery on each page.

The text done in rhyme, highlighted the words to be emphasized and savored, giving clues as to what lay behind the door ahead.I loved this book on many levels, not just as a journey through doors, but as a way to enlarge vocabulary and to encourage the appreciation of details. Best of all, this book ends on the greatest door of all- the door to a book. The author writes- "This is a door of a different kind- to fantastic worlds that will open your mind." You can't ask for a better ending than that one. I loved this book as a mother, an educator and a librarian, but most especially as the reader.

This book will be enjoyed by ages four through eight and the lucky adults who they share it with.
