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.
Our youngest son absolutely loved Laura Vaccaro Seeger when he was in pre-k. Her books made him a book lover. All of her books are wonderful. First The Egg was the first book of hers we were introduced to, and one of the most special books ever. We have shared this with so many little ones over the years. We have even given this as a baby shower gift, thinking of the wonderful time parents will have to share this special book with their children. In case you were wondering, the Seeger is in fact THAT Seeger. Pete Seeger's music and words live on and also a family favorite. This family has made so many magnificent contributions to the world. Thank you
As others have written, this is an extremely clever book with outstanding illustrations. I would even say that each page is a piece of art. If you value early introduction to science, nature, and critical thinking then this is a must have book. The tie-ins are ingenious and the book comes full cirle by the end. And the incorporation of the cut outs is equally remarkable. It's hard to explain. Read it and you'll see what I mean. Importantly, it's not too wordy so it's a pleasure to read. When I read it to my 2 1/2 year old duaghter, I let her her finish the second part of the "then the...." refrain. She enjoys it as much as I do which says it all. Buy it and read it to your kids.
This is a great book for really little kids who are just learning to read because there are so few words and the story is told primarily through very unique illustrations. My infant even liked this book because there are so many bright colors to look at.
This book was suggested with another book I was already purchasing and I didn't really look at it before getting it home. What a simple, complex book! An oxymoron? Probably, but it seems to fit. The book is simple enough for a little bitty, but complex enough for a school-age child. It's great to be read to a child. It's great to be read by a child. You can take it at face value or you can expand on the ideas presented. The artwork is gorgeous; the "holes" in each page creative. This is a very well done book. It's not surprising that it's an award winner.
I'm really pleased with this book. It has only a simple word or two on each page, the illustrations are very bright, and it is a quick little science lesson that goes full circle. I actually bought it for my 18 month old granddaughter but have found that every time I read it to her, her 3 and 4 year old siblings come running and listen to every word, too. It's sure to be a family favorite.
