Little Kid Reaction

My son loved it! After the first two pages he said “It’s a rhyming book!” and has read it four more times since then. He enjoys reading anything he can but he really laughed out loud at this one. He doesn’t take to every book like this one.

Parent Reaction

This book was cute with a great rhythm in the rhyme scheme. The illustrations are colorful and fun.

Pros:

The combination of the book being perfectly sized for younger children, the great rhyme scheme, and fun illustrations make this an engaging book for everyone to share.

Cons:

None.
