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.
George has a loving family who all talk to him. But he doesn't really listen, and does his own thing, in fact he has a secret his family doesn't quite know about. - actually, the only people who know are you, and him!
Honestly, when I first read this book, I would have given it 1 star. I was not impressed by the illustration and the simplicity seemed to be dull to my child and I. However, the more I read this book, the more it grows on me. I love George, he is a silly old dog with a peculiar personality that makes this book fun to read to my child. I have the opportunity to make voices and point to key elements in the illustration as we read, and am able to make this book interactive. It has become a bedtime & night time book that my son sleeps with. I would recommend this book to any child who likes dogs, dancing, and who is learning to speak and any parent who is willing to read the same book over and over again. I hope George can make an appearance in some additional books someday.
This came in my monthly Amazon prime book box for my grandchild. It was damaged. This is the first time I was diapointed with my membership. Although minor if this happened in shipping I wonder if this batch of books will stand up to a toddler and if the were shipped this way that dispoints me even more. They porblaby would exchange them without question but not going to return this shipment. (I let my grandchild open box it would be like taking away a new toy) I will be paying closer attention to future shipments.
As a dog lover I am always biased to any book about dogs but for some reason I just love reading this one to my baby. I think George just reminds me of our old grumpy old man family dog (RIP Simon). No matter how grumpy he seemed he still loved us and that is like George.
Now I wonder if Simon also used to get into antics while we were gone. Hmmmm.
I’m not sure why this book is popular or well received. It was in my Amazon book box. I’ve only read it to my daughter once but i didn’t find this one to be a fun or interesting read and even the illustrations left something to be desired.
My 2 year old was not impressed by this book,I usually like Sandra boynton books but this one left a little to be desired. The pictures are almost the same on all the pages and it only made me chuckle because I'm an adult and get the story.
