this books will seem familiar to most parents. “more” and “again” are regular parts of the toddler vocabulary. henry is a perfect example of this. his family is loving and indulgent …my favorite kind of family. the book rhymes which is perfect so kids can scream “more” and “again” at the appropriate times.
i cannot tell you how much my girl loves this book. It’s been in our bedtime pile for over two weeks. i think it’s because she and sophia have so much in common: both are single-minded, persistent and quite skilled at lobbying for whatever the preschool cause de célèbre.
the illustrations in this book are beautiful. as is the language used to connect the children of the earth to the earth itself.
Children come in all colors of the earth. The roaring browns of nears and the soaring eagles.
my girl cared more about the animals and trying to figure out the relationship between characters in the book.
bonus: multicultural and multiracial families are pictured.
