While I like the cute story and illustrations, I am frustrated by the incorrect grammar. A book designed for young children can be amusing and entertaining AND teach the correct way to speak (which so many people fail to do in today’s world). I also disliked the introduction of the words “dumb” and “stupid” into my son’s vocabulary. I realize it’s only a matter of time before he learns such things from his peers, but I’m certain the author could have found another way to express the little moose’s displeasure with legumes and an early bedtime. Overall, it’s an entertaining book that kept my son’s attention and made him laugh, but I don’t think I would recommend to others.
