The Turkeybird (My son's opinion, age 3) Takes Over: "Let me just take the reigns while Littlebug goes off to chew on some other book. I'm not sure exactly why my parents thought that these books would be more appropriate for Littlebug(my daughter, age 1), but they were wrong. She received them this Christmas and no sooner had she received them did she toss them to the side for a more flashy glowing singing worm thing. In my opinion, she's made a grievous mistake. These books will soon become classics, as anyone with any taste will obviously see upon their first reading. "Now, I'm not going to say that Littlebug doesn't have any good taste (she must, she likes my "That's Not My Truck" book), it just so happens that in this particular case she has fallen a bit short. In fact, I think she may have fallen asleep. "But that's besides the point! These books have everything! From skateboarding to playing with dad to going to school and even cleaning up my room (which believe it or not, I like to do). Just incredible books with wonderful fun friends I'm sure you'll enjoy. Pea, Hoot and Oink are some of the best characters in modern literature and you would be just silly not to pick these up!" Mom's Two Cents: "When the Turkeybird speaks, he speaks. I won't argue one bit. We judged a book by it's cover so to say and by so doing gave the wrong book to the wrong child. That's not to say that Littlebug won't enjoy these in a year or so from now, because I'm pretty sure she will, she just doesn't today. "He's right though, these are great books! For me as well as for the kids. I honestly LOVE reading these aloud to The Turkeybird. They're so fun and entertaining, but also have a twist of teaching to them. Each book focuses on a different point of a child's life of learning, be it sleeping, what to eat or cleaning up. Each one is taught in such a way that it makes each task seem like the enjoyable part of the day and not the chore to be completed. The illustrations are simple and beautiful. And overall wonderful books, great for the whole family. (I think I'd even read them without children.)"
