What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

A substantive yet silly color book with character worth reading again and again.

This color book is a step above your typical introduction for infants and toddlers. Featuring Reich’s signature pear-shaped hamsters, this is our favorite to date of Reich’s hamster set including an opposites, vehicles and numbers book in addition to this color spectacular. Is anyone else tired of red apples? While This Little Hamster does include some objects that little readers will recognize right off the bat—a rubber duck, cherries, cupcakes, etc.—it also presents a smorgasbord of more eclectic objects including a spool of thread, a bowl of jello, a prize winning pepper and a bubble machine that will expand little horizons and encourage thinking outside of the box. This Little Hamster also leaves the pack of color books behind in the realm of sheer re-readability with a cadence and rhyme scheme that makes this a great read-aloud without requiring mental energy from the reading adult to fill in the gaps.
