About What Are You Doing?

Written by Elisa Amado
Illustrated by Manuel Monroy

It’s the first day of school, but before he goes Chepito runs outside to play. He comes across all kinds of people in his neighborhood — a man reading a newspaper, a young girl enjoying a comic, a couple of tourists consulting a guidebook, an archeologist studying hieroglyphics . . .

“Why, why, why?” he sings, and they each have an answer for him. Later that day Chepito discovers for himself that reading is catching, and he even brings home a book to read to his younger sister.

Set in a delightfully retro world by illustrator Manuel Monroy, this book is a true celebration of reading.
