To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I totally forgot I preordered this so it was a surprising delight to receive it today. My son is a few months short of three and loves all Bruce books. He was upset about bedtime until he saw...A NEW BRUCE BOOK ON HIS BED! Like a couple of the other Bruce stories, it runs maybe a touch long for a younger kid like mine’s attention span, but that’s not advertised as the target age (just something to keep in mind) and means it’ll grow with him. The illustrations are enjoyable as always (cute animals and bright colors), and it’s a nice fresh plot. I feel like it could be tricky to come up with new stories that manage to involve Bruce, his geese, and the three mice without feeling repetitive, but Ryan Higgins does a good job there. I would say this is not my favorite in the series, but probably only due to my bias towards Christmas stories. We gobble these books up, and this addition exceeded my admittedly high expectations for the series. Keep them coming!
I've liked all Bruce books but this one. I didn't care for the wild cousin's visit. I like the character Bruce. He's gone in this one and the wild cousin didn't have the same entertainment when reading. But I did see the message to kids.
