This unique story follows the process of making a book from printing to shipping to selling . . . to reading!

This beautifully illustrated picture book shows the journey of one book from printer to reader. Bright, contemporary artwork details the people, the vehicles, and the distance traveled as one book makes it into the hands of a young boy, allowing readers to understand how the very book they hold in their hands made its way all around the world.
