Pre-order giveaway: I WANT TO READ ALL THE BOOKS

(Last updated March 1, 2024)

Cover of picture book titled "I Want To Read ALL The Books" featuring illustration of blissful girl hugging a book beside a dog, surrounded by many piles of books.


If you pre-order I WANT TO READ *ALL* THE BOOKS by Debbie Ridpath Ohi and fill out this form by August 1st, you’ll not only receive a signed bookplate and stickes (while supplies last; US & Canada only), but you’ll also be entered in a monthly raffle for books, original art, bibliophile jewelry, signed bookmarks, signed prints, stickers, and other goodies. Winners announced each month; scroll down for details.

If you are a K-12 educator, you will ALSO be entered in a special draw for a free virtual 20-minute Q&A classroom visit with Debbie in the 2024-2025 school year. Winner announced in September 2024.

Why pre-order? Why not just buy the book when it comes out?

Pre-ordering helps book creators in many ways. In Debbie’s case, it especially helps by:

  • Letting her publisher know people are interested in her solo picture books, which increases the chances she’ll be able to do more. 🤞🏼
  • If you order from an indie bookstore, it helps them become aware of Debbie’s book. They may order more. You’re also helping to support their business.

What is the book about?

An insatiably curious girl decides the only way to answer all her questions is to read all the books in this funny and charming picture book in the spirit of The Library Fish and Tom Chapin’s The Library Book. More info on the Simon & Schuster website. This would make a great gift for a curious young reader, educators and librarians, and any bibliophile who has a big “To Read” pile!

Learn how the book was made, download free print-ready bonus activity sheets (will be added closer to the launch date) and more at Debbie’s I Want To Read ALL The Books book page.
