Praise For I See (I Like to Read)

"The minimalist text is perfect for emerging readers, allowing children the ability to successfully read a whole book. Each repetitive sentence with its additional new word is coupled with recognizable picture cues to help in decoding. Cepeda's characteristically energetic artwork offers sharp-edged, jagged lines that give it a scratch-art look. . . . The book's simplicity guarantees achievement for beginning readers."—Kirkus Reviews
