Format - board book
Find on Amazon
It's spring and all of the animals are busy doing something. Mole is digging. Bear is fishing. Mama's busy too. But there's one thing that Mama's never too busy for and that's her children.
This book was adorable. The illustrations were vibrant and made the pages come to life. The story itself is written in simple rhymes.
I read this book to my friend's children (5, 3, 2), and each of them were captivated by something different. The youngest was captivated by the pictures and kept reaching out to touch them. The oldest enjoyed the almost musical quality to the words. The middle one, she was sitting with me sounding out some of the words and actually reading it.
I'd say that this book is good for kids of all ages. Parents will enjoy it as it helps children that sometimes parents are busy, but never too busy for their little ones.
I received this book for free from Worthy's First Look Blog Program for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of board books, parents of young children
