4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Read; Not That Attractive In the End Though Oct. 28 2008
By C. G. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is ideal for children to read because the poems are fairly easy to read. I got this book mainly for the illustrator and hoped the poems would bring the images to life. Unfortunately, the poetry is bland which makes it difficult to keep a child's attention. So while I commend the book on its art and its delicate use of easy words, do not expect funny or clever poems to keep the kids entertained. The first reaction, usually, is that the kids are attracted to the colors, but begin reading and the interest quickly slips away. Great effort on the author's part! This would make a "safe" gift should you ever find yourself looking for a last minute book/gift.
