a delightful book using the lyrics of a well known song. we sang this as a bedtime song when she was much littler. it’s had been some time so i was surprised that she recognized it. she did and we ended up singing instead of reading the book.
although there is a cute little brown boy on the cover, the characters in this book represent all different races. it’s nice to see. how does my preschooler feel about this book? well to be honest, she only really like the parts where worms and poop are discussed.
edit: this book has become a favorite. you know one of the ones she “reads” herself. and honestly, I’m not sure why
i really thought this one would be a hit with the girl because she loves onomatopoeic words and this kind of rhythmic storytelling. nope. couldn’t interest her. but, we will try it again. because it’s bell hooks.
