Is It Any Good?

Vibrant colors, especially contrasted against a deep blue background, and full-paged animals with startled expressions will pull almost any reader into this book. But, though the illustrations are colorful and appealing, without them the story really isn't much of a story at all. The words themselves can be rather corny; however, most kids like silly wordplay, and this book might be a good jumping off spot for playing with rhyming and alliteration.

If you think talking about rear ends and all the different names we have for them is funny, you may think this is a clever book. If you don't, well, then you might want to skip this one.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
