What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

You'll be rising, waking, reading, and re-reading this treasure-filled, modern book about community.

Ready and Timmers pair perfectly together in this vibrant creation about community. A bunny mom and her little one take you on a walk around their busy town full of diverse animal characters in layered illustrations that add depth and detail to the story. Reminiscent of titles by Richard Scarry, you can find new treasures hidden within no matter how often you join in on the tour around town. The bouncy text is filled to the brim with verbs ending in “ing,” introducing great vocabulary words in a fast-paced flow that matches perfectly with the busy illustrations. Next to the surpise ending suggesting the power of imagination, the jewel of this read is the remarkable relatablilty of the town, as little readers will find familiarities on each page to their own home, wherever it may be. Though the illustrations are detailed and the cadence works well, not everyone will be a fan of the book’s modern style or diction, which can feel simply like a list of rhyming verbs. The story aspect is lacking in that there’s not a memorable or moral plot, but the fun memories you’ll have from playing I Spy and the joyful flow of the book will make this a well-loved book in many home libraries.
