Mom and Teacher Approved!
Reviewed in the United States on June 20, 2019
I initially received this book as a gift and it quickly became a household favorite! My 2-year-old adores it, frequently requesting it as a bedtime story.
As a mom and early childhood educator, I love that this book incorporates various animals, some of which are not your typical children’s book animals - this is great for expanding my animal-loving child’s repertoire.
The general theme of the book is the use of opposite descriptor words (e.g. high/low, loud/quiet). When reading the book, I act out them out using my voice or hands, respectively. This is very developmentally-appropriate content for early childhood!
I also love a good rhyming book with repetition - this is excellent for language development! I will often pause while reading and encourage my toddler to fill in the rhyming words.
Overall, this is one of my favorite children’s books (and I have read A LOT of children’s books). It is now one of my go-to gifts for fellow teachers, baby showers, and children’s birthdays! It’s a great purchase that you won’t regret!
