The Bambino and Me
Written by Zachary Hyman
Illustrated by Zachary Pullen
Read by Jason Alexander
Hardcover | 48 Pages | Ages 6-9
“Students grades 1 through 5 enjoyed the book. They laughed at the pictures, especially when George defied his mother and got his mouth washed out with soap. And children laughed at some of the phrases in the book such as, ‘I’d rather kiss a girl.’ Both boys and girls liked the story and they especially liked the theme of never giving up.” – Comstock Read Aloud Honor Books 2015
The Comstock Read Aloud Book Award for children’s literature, sponsored by the Curriculum Materials Center at Minnesota State University Moorhead, is for the best picture book of the year to read aloud to older children (ages 9-12).
