Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

As more and more books really do require batteries, this fresh book is a magical gem. A giddy read-along of this deceptively simple book will make those flashy phone and iPad apps seem a lot less charming.

Artist Hervé Tullet uses a palette of primary colors and a bold brush. He cheerfully encourages readers to play along, sharing their surprise and delight as the dots morph from page to page. Tech-savvy kids and their parents will delight in the silliness. It's a wonderful read-along for preschoolers, with opportunities to reinforce counting, patterns, and following instructions. And like the best apps, it's a game the family will love to play again and again.

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.
