Book Review: Tay Goes To The Game by Phelicia Lang

Someone pleeaassee tell me they had such cool books when I was a child?? Books that had handsome little black boys and girls that looked like me and the little girls I knew. Story lines that are filled with fun times and cool activities. I am so thrilled to join with Multicultural Children’s Book Day (http://multiculturalchildrensbookday.com) as a book reviewer for some absolutely fantastic and diverse books that are just like I described.

Tay Goes To The Game, a book graciously gifted to me to review by Phelicia Lang, is a wonderful book for budding young readers especially important to young black boys. This instructional reader is a delightful book filled with self esteem boosts and positive self-perceptions with identifiable figures. I love how the book weaves a fun story and wraps it around a strong family image complete with a central father figure.

There are a few elements that are important to know about this book. One important note is this book is purposefully designed for adults to read with children. The reading tips in the beginning of the book make it super easy to help your young reader flourish and have fun beginning their lifelong habit of reading. Another point is the book includes advancing words that will be a little difficult at first for some readers but will serve as an instructional victory for any young reader. I wholeheartedly recommend this Picture book to any young reader!
