This was one of those books that my son picked out from the library and didn't want to return. Because I am a former children's librarian, I cannot condone that. To prevent an ethical quandary, I ordered him his own copy before the three-week check-out period ended.
Although this book is wonderfully colorful and delightfully drawn, it is not one I would have bought on my own. Never underestimate the power of concentric circle eyes. Not only does my little boy love to run his finger over the ridges, he also discovered that the eyes are just the right size for the Pier One ceramic balls I bought for Spring. He also discovered that those balls do NOT bounce on a hardwood floor -- that would be another story.
As far as the writing goes, it is super-simple and rhymed, although sometimes the rhyming feels a bit forced. I can't fault it too much, because sometimes so does mine. Anyway, as I said, I would not have decided to buy this book except for the fact that my son loves it so much. And your child loving a book is a pretty darn good reason to buy it.

My baby boy LOVES the circles and picts. He loves turning the pages and feeling the circles. I personally like the pictures too. I highly reccomend as a baby/toddler book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

We checked this book out at the library, and we liked it so much that I bought it as a gift. It has interactive pages as the animals' eye circles get smaller throughout the book. My 2 1/2 year old loved to touch the eyes. Whereas my 4 year old son enjoyed the "guessing game" part of the book: each page describes the animal and asks you to guess "Who am I?" It is enjoyable for both ages and was a perfect gift for a two year old.
When I asked what animal is this, and waited for my four year old to answer there was silence. Then my two year old said "An eagle!" Priceless.

I purchased this book for my preschool grandchild.....not interested in it at all. The EYES were the only thing that was interesting. Pics are not appealing either.
