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 agree with many reviewers that this book is a recycled version of the first one. Plus, it's hard to explain time-travel to a 4-year-old. I much prefer the original story. However, my kids (ages 2 and 4) LOVE this book. They will pick it over the first one almost every time. They think the diapers and the "tacos love dragons" pages are hilarious. They also love the last page, although the pictures include multiple cultural references that they don't understand. So, who am I to question a book that my kids love so much?
My grandson has the first book in this series and enjoys it, even at the age of eleven. However, was not pleased with packaging. The book has a book cover and was thrown into a box at an angle because the box was a bit small. The cover was a little crumpled along the bottom edge because of this and fortunately was not torn. Gift for my grandson.
My boys LOVED the first book, so we had to give this Sequel a shot. They thought it was funny and enjoyed it for sure. As a parent, I thought it was just ok. I think it starts out strong but leaves more to be desired. The illustrations are just as bright, silly and fun as the first- and I think that's why the kids love these books so much.
The first book is my daughters all time favorite book. The first few weeks we had it years ago she was obsessed. Like always it's hard to follow up on a masterpiece and this book doesn't reach the greatness of the first. However a lot of people are saying they don't like it all or say it's too weird. I find my daughter still really likes this book and understands the time travel aspect decent enough. It is a little weird and all over the place but it still is great and worth your money. And again, the fact of the matter is my daughter and I get to laugh and enjoy reading together, and isn't that the point?
This book is cool because it involves time traveling back to the original book. It is a little hard for younger kids to understand but I think it's a great sequel because long after the original has become "just an old kids book", this book brings in a whole new level to the original. Very fun but hard for young kinds to understand the time travel aspect, they need to be a little bit older than when they read the first book.
to me this book didn't really NEED to exist, but my daughter (who is 5) loved the first one so much it was kind of a given to get her the second. We did read it several times, but it has been shelved since then and she doesn't love it as much as the first. For me it kind of has one joke, which it repeats a few times, though I admit the "tacos love dragons" page got a laugh even out of me.
