This is a fun, silly book that will make any of your littles giggle! It reminded me of reading Where the Sidewalk ends when I was a child! The stories range from brushing your teeth in the morning to going to bed at night…and everything in-between!
I really enjoyed that these poems were grounded in realistic situations that every kid has encountered. Boo-boos, bedtime, nose picking, and so much more! It’s a relatable book of poetry that definitely had my kiddo laughing!
Each page has a fun poem and beautiful illustrations to bring it to life! The illustrator, Amy Wummer, has created a bright enticing art that my daughter really enjoyed!
Overall, I think this is a great book for kids. It’s great for daycares and home libraries!
