Very cute and nice book.

Cute pop up book that my 2 year old son loves. My six year old daughter loves ready it to him. Very sturdy for a pop up book--we only had one tail break off.

This busy pop-up book is short on plot but long on fun. Each page has something to do -- a tab to pull to make eggs hatch or a fluffy tail to pet. A short sentence runs across the two facing pages, making this a quick read, but kids may want to linger on the pop-up features. The book is sturdier than most pop-up books, with heavy pages and chunky tabs, but most toddlers and preschoolers will require adult supervision (and help).

Kids will love playing with the book but some may not be interested in the rather mundane text. Simple rhymes do little more than slow down kids anxious to hurry and pull the next tab. Fortunately, the pictures and pop-ups give readers lots to discuss as they move through the book.

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.
