Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Turns out that not only is Jeff Foxworthy a fairly funny guy for adults, he also gets what makes kids laugh and he knows how to pull together a rhyme. His collection would be a fun addition to the family library even without his famous name on the cover. His mix of long and short poems makes it easy to find something to read even for kids who get antsy.

The illustrations are well suited to the story, with lots of busy kids and lots of movement. The result? A fun and funny book that might even become a family read-aloud favorite.

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.
