Small Talk Reviews
When I was baby sitting the other night, the girl I was baby sitting is 1.5 years old. She loves book and it was time to sit in the rocker and fall asleep. I asked her what book she wanted to read. She picked this book. This book was a cute book and it grabbed my attention. The book is about how one animal, a cat, starts a rumor about some mysterious creature being on top of the roof and they don't know what it could be. Then as the other animals such as a crossbill, bulldog, duck, and hippo talk about the mysterious creature, it gets blown out of proportion. The animals is big and green and has nasty teeth. In the end, that is not what it is. This book uses very good illustrations, uses pop outs of the animals mouths with paper (which kept the girl's attention the most!) and I wanted to keep reading it to see what the animal in the end was! Also, this book would be a great book for the Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade student. The reason I say this is because it teaches them a little lesson about gossiping and spreading rumors at an young age. It shows them that passing information from one person to the next is not the best route and will not always be true. In the end, it could end up hurting someone's feelings.
I love these little pop-ups. I remember this one from my childhood. I only wish pop-ups weren't so prone to rips and so difficult to repair.(My used copy has written in it: To Jamie from Nannie Rae and Cute Poppa. 5/1/94.)
Amazingly long shelf life; from board book age to first grade.
this book is the perfect length to keep a two year old entertained.
Made me piss myself when I was little and now it's a nice little souvenir of pissing myself.
These series are really cute and good books to have for inside a classroom or at home.
