My 2 year old loveS this book. It’s perfect for children learning their animals and colors. Also, the rhythm of the book appeals to toddlers and its short and straightforward to keep them engaged in the story.
After reading this novel to my 2/3 year old daughter I decided to check out more books by Bill Martin jr. and Eric Carle. And let me tell you, they did not disappoint! We love the illustrations and the fact that their aren’t too many sentences on one page. It is straight forward and rewarding at the end! Eric Carl’s is 90 years old today. How amazing is it that we can share classic pictures with our children now and Forever! RIP Bill Martin Jr.
This is a must read for toddlers👌
A true classic for both adults and children of all ages! This is an excellent story time book to read aloud with the audience together. After reading the first 2 pages, everyone usually follows along. Repetition, colours, and animals are great concepts to enhance your child's vocabulary and memory skills. I have read this awesome story from time to time, where the children would typically remember reading it from before and becoming excited till the end!!!
I read this to my one year old every night. He enjoys the strong contrast of colors and word repetition.
This is a favorite at our house. We substitute Cardinal bird for red bird and Mommy for teacher. I have also made flannel board pieces. My teacher friends loved them.
A classic in Children's literature. Kids love the simple story pattern, colors and animals. After a couple of readings, children can picture read book back to parents.
It's funny because he sees lots of animals looking back at him. - Joseph, age 7.
Accompanied by Eric Carle’s beautiful collage illustrations, children will delight in the colour, the animals, and Bill Martin Jr’s gentle rhyming text.
With repetitive phrases and vibrant colours this remains a favorite picture book to share with young children.
Great for child's first book that they can read on their own...until they memorize it!
I own this book, my son loves to read it! It's repetitive and has great colors.
This book was my favorite when I was a kid. I still read it at school just for the memories. Also check out the very hungry caterpillar, also a classic fun kid-loving book, about a very fat caterplliar that becomes a butterfly. Yep, toddler memories :)
A very good children book. I enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book for all to read.
A++ All the way….A must have Book in all Libraries - worth the long library wait and WORTH the cost of owing!
I would recommend this movie for all to read.
I would recommend this book to parents for children under the age of 5. This book is an easy read and I believe is a good book for learning how to read. The book is repetitive and the words are simple. The book is always recommended because the book can also be used as a teaching tool to identify colors and animals. The story goes over the most commonly seen animals and every color of the spectrum wheel. I would highly recommend this book for story time for young children just starting out in need to learn the basics. The flow of the story is quite predictable; however that's what in my belief what makes the story easy for children to follow, and which also makes the story a great tool in teaching children how to read.
