Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Notorious RAD
Mom of 1. Wife to 1. #1.
4.0 / 7.0

Heavy book that has super huge pages. Hard to balance and read and offer it to the little reader to participate.

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
5.25 / 7.0

It’s a little lengthy for my pre-schooler, but it’s really fun. We enjoy the illustrations, especially because they’re so different from anything else on our bookshelf. It’s clever and silly, and even my one-year-old likes to get in on the high-five action.

The Goodfather
Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
5.0 / 7.0

The rhyming is stretched a bit far to make some of the text work (for example, rhyming “yourself” with “help”). But the illustrations are fluorescent, bright, and fun, and the concept of a high fiving contest is original and sure to be a huge hit with young readers.
