grandma's bookshelf - The Baby That ROARED - I'm Giving One Away!

I read and review a LOT of books for children . . . since I love books, this is something I enjoy doing! However; every once-in-awhile a book comes along which is a true delight . . . and occasionally one comes along which makes me laugh out-loud! This book is one such book!

The Baby That Roared  
Author - Simon Puttock
Illustrator - Nadia Shireen
publisher - nosy crow
Ages - 3+

Favorite Features -
  • this is a delightful, funny and unexpected story!
  • I love how this is a monster story - but not really a scary monster story!
  • colorful illustrations with "texture"
  • I love how the illustrations give "clues" to the story
  • I love how the story asks questions and then tries to find the answers . . . and the answer is unexpected!
  • I enjoy the use of the word, "peculiar" in this story as it is a word Josiah loves to use!
This story is so much fun!!!! Be sure to get your grandchildren to "roar" with the "dear, little baby" . . . and be sure you "roar" along with them!

As I mentioned, not only did nosy crow send me a book to review, but they are also making another available for me to give away (in the USA only)! If you have followed grandma's cookie jar with Google Friend Connect and/or "Follow grandma's cookie jar by email", then you are entered in the drawing which will be on August 21, 2012.
