Moo, Baa, La La La! Board Book Review



Buy at Amazon

Review:

This short board book was one of my daughter’s favorite read-aloud books as a young toddler. The funny, rhyming text and cute illustrations are a fun way to help teach simple animal noises, and toddlers absolutely LOVE the opportunity to “correct” the silly singing pigs.

My rating: (4 / 5)

The Going To Bed Book Review



Buy at Amazon

Review:

A perfect choice for a bedtime read, with rhyming, relatable text and cute illustrations. My only gripe is that the animals make the mystifying choice to take a bath, get in their pajamas, and THEN run upstairs to exercise. Who takes a bath and then runs out and immediately gets all sweaty again? Not to mention you’d then have to try and fall asleep in sweaty pajamas. Anyway, that’s a little weird, but I guess Boynton just couldn’t think of any word but exercise to rhyme with “when the moon is on the rise.”

On the other hand, the final line – “The moon is high, the sea is deep, they rock and rock and rock to sleep” – is perfect, especially when accompanied by actual rocking. 🙂

My rating: (4 / 5)

Your Personal Penguin Board Book Review

Review:

A cute sing-along book about a penguin who wants to be best friends with a somewhat befuddled-looking hippo. The song, performed by Davy Jones, is available as a free download.
