Little Kid Reaction

My daughter loved this book and re-read it several times. The first time through she was mostly interested in the story. In subsequent readings she focused on the boxes with facts about the various insects and animals. Then she made the "food chain" connections about what eats what.

Parent Reaction

Toon Books are fun to read and enjoyable to share, though I have to admit I particularly like watching my daughter pull out pieces and talk about them excitedly. There are several layers to Zig and Wikki, and I like the addition of science content.

Pros:

Colorful illustrations, moderate text, and two silly aliens will build readers confidence as they enjoy Zig and Wikki.

Cons:

None, really. There are additional activities online, but it takes a really long time to load them.
