Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
3.0 / 7.0

My son likes to point out and identify the sun in this book, but that’s really all it has going for it, and it probably will have to find a new home next time we weed out books. If you’re super into comics, I could see this as being a fun introduction for kids, but the story is a little lacking and I find it taxing to read since to keep my toddler’s attention I have to do so much additional describing of what’s going on since there are so few words.

3.25 / 7.0

I like that this board book is introducing the comic style to little ones and that it promotes sharing. I has few words, but I like that the words it does have are teaching emotional awareness by asking how certain actions make them feel. I wish it had more words, rather than almost solely relying on the pictures to tell the story. Overall, it was fine to read once or twice, but it’s not my favorite.
