Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Lemony Snickers
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.

5.0 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are so colorful and beautiful! This book has lots of different sounds that Harold repeats (as a parrot does), which is fun for little ones. There’s also an overarching theme of the importance of one’s own voice, which I think is valuable.
