About This Book

Reading Can Be Fun is a children’s classic by Munro Leaf, the bestselling author of Manners Can Be Fun.

From the desktops of Andy and Gil Leaf: 

One of the most important lessons our father taught us is the value of reading. The exhilaration of turning a page and having words leap out, begging to be uttered and embraced, is a profound experience that is permanently etched in the mind. This was his message to every child. A springboard for the imagination, a book can be educational and fun.

It is a huge joy that the key to the amusing, creative, and engaging world of our father can once again be found on bookshelves. He would be tremendously pleased and satisfied to know that today, nearly seventy years and one century later, his words still have resonance—words that will be fondly remembered by generations past, and words that will be savored, chuckled over, and read countless times by a new generation of curious, inquisitive, and impressionable young eyes.

About the Author

Munro Leaf was the author and illustrator of dozens of children's books. He is best known for The Story of Ferdinand, first published in 1936 and a bestseller ever since. Many famous artists have served as illustrators on his books, including Robert Lawson, Ludwig Bemelmans, and Theodor Seuss Geisel (also known as Dr. Seuss). Leaf also penned the charming non-fiction series for children concerning manners and behavior that was republished after a hiatus, including the titles How to Behave and Why, Manners Can Be Fun, and How To Speak Politely.

Leaf died in 1976 at the age of 71.
