This lovely collection of poems focuses on books and the reading experience. Playful and accessible, these pages were a reminder of the simple joys of poetry. A favourite poem is the collection's namesake: Tom Robert Shields' "I Am the Book." It warmly reminded me of the joys and power of reading. The illustrations are bright and playful. I can see myself pulling out this book in the future when I'm in need of a quick poem.
