I don't see why not.  lol  I stole it from National PTA.  It gave me the inspiration for a project to encourage reading at school.  I'm posing this very question to the staff at our school and am going to make posters (or something) with their answer on it and hang them around the building in the hopes of inspiring a love a reading in the children.

I absolutely hated reading as a child and struggled with it for many years.  A teacher suggested Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein and that is where my love of reading started.  That book of silly poems made me realise that reading could be fun instead of a boring chore that I had to do.

I honestly don't remember. We were brought up reading and always had our own library of books. I am raising my son the same way.

Have you read their other books?   My dad brought out my copy of The Giving Tree which is over 25 yrs old for dd to add to her collection.
