Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We picked this book up from our local library. When I picked this book up I thought it would be a great read for K and myself. But it didn't seem to hold K's interest within the book being as it is poems. He likes an actually story. For him I guess the poems and rhyming didn't really keep him wanting to read more. I do love this author's work but this book just didn't keep us wanting to read. For those that like poems by different authors then I say give this book a go you may like it, but it was not something for us.
I think I must be the only parent in America who doesn't like Eric Carle's work, in general. I like his drawings, but not the stories. This work is the perfect solution, for the text is short poems from world literature. The result is a book that will last a long time, for my 21 month-old son loves the pictures now as he's leaning the names and sounds of these animals, and the poetry will keep it engaging for years to come.
