This is the second book I have read now by Ingo Blum and I've given them both 3 stars. This wasn't a bad book, it was better than 'Where is My Little Dog?' but still just a 3 star for me. My 5-year-old niece enjoyed it more too but I doubt it's something we'd ever read together again. It's a cute and funny little book with animals who live on a farm. They organize a party for their friend (who is a duck) Carlos's birthday party. I'm really not a fan of some of the names but that's neither here nor there. I didn't like that the conflict between Carlos and Nelly was never dealt with, it was just swept under the rug sort of speak. What a missed learning opportunity that was. I didn't care for the way the bilingual is set up. Again for little kids that are not bilingual, the extra words are confusing and distracting. Also, my niece was a bit disappointed that the pictures weren’t on the same pages as the story, perhaps it was because it was kindle format..? I don't know. Anyways the illustrations are really adorable and brightly colored so the artwork really pops and my niece loved the coloring pages at the end of the book that I was able to print out for her.
I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy.
With the words being on a separate page, and sizable amounts of text at a time, it was hard to keep her attention. Bilingual books are also more manageable when it's just a sentence or two at a time. I also think the emphasis could have been more on the kindness/ friendship, than the Birthday being "the best day of the year. "
