Opinion

From Library Staff

Kids who enjoy books have what educators call “print motivation”.

If kids associate reading with negative feelings, their motivation to read is diminished.

Find the right time when you and your kids are in the mood and enjoy reading together!

A young bear recounts places he likes to sleep: in his bed, in a big chair, in his mom's lap, on a pile of cookies. His friend responds, "No, silly! You eat cookies." Bear then lists things he likes to eat until he gives another silly answer. Pictures of each activity ensure your reader... Read More »

Preschoolers list their favourite things to do while their parents pay attention. Silliness ensues!

My new favourite! Each section of this concept picture book offers three plausible behaviors (“I like to sleep in my bed. I like to sleep in my dad’s big chair. I like to sleep in my mama’s lap”) and one absurd conclusion (“And I like to sleep on cookies”), allowing for a happy correction (“No, silly! You eat cookies”). Charming, large scale illustrations and simple text make this a perfect read for toddler story time.

SUMMARY: Three friends talk about silly situations they imagine such as sleeping on cookies or eating books.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The pictures were created in oil paint. They are soft, colorful, fun and full of smiles.

REVIEW: What I like about this book is it teaches young children about the difference between real and pretend. The story invites interaction from the listener who can say, "No, Silly," every time an imaginary situation is shown. The book shows real situations first, "I like to sleep in my bed," "I like to sleep in my dad's big chair," and then, "And I like to sleep on cookies."

AGE RECOMMENDATION: I disagree with the publisher's age range of 4-8. This book's content is much more geared to the much younger reader of 3-5.
