4.0 von 5 Sternen Simple and enchanting, 8. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Goodnight Moon (Bibliothekseinband)
"In the great green room, there was a telephone and red balloon . . ." This was the first book that I read to my daughter. She continued to enjoy it until she was two and a half years old, and now, at the ripe old age of four, although she has advanced to books of much greater complexity, she still asks for it from time to time. Goodnight Moon is quietly entertaining, from the simple, rhythmic text (which lends itself more to chanting than to reading) to the marvelous illustrations of the strangely soothing "great green room" which grow darker as the story progresses and the bunny gets closer bed time.
As your child grows older, he or she will enjoy finding the elusive baby mouse on each of the colored illustrations. The appeal of this book is somewhat inexplicable, but it is both timeless and enchanting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A terrific read for children and adults, 8. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Frog and Toad Are Friends (Taschenbuch)
Because I am dedicated to reading aloud to my kids, I tend to review a book based upon whether or not it makes a good read-aloud book. All of the Frog and Toad books, and especially this one, are simply terrific for reading aloud.
My (four-year-old) daughter and I both love this book. The stories are funny and become funnier with each re-reading. For example, in the final story, Frog writes Toad a letter because Toad never receives mail and becomes sad every day at mailtime. Frog proceeds to give his letter to a snail for delivery. Frog cannot stand the suspense of waiting for the snail to deliver the letter, so he tells Toad about the letter and relates the contents. Together, they happily wait for the letter to arrive, which takes four days. Every time we read this story, my daughter laughs because Frog gave his letter to a snail, when everyone knows that snails are the slowest creatures alive.
The Frog and Toad books represent a perfect bridge from picture books to books where the words provide the story and the illustrations are infrequent and/or merely supplemental. The stories in these books are carried forward by the words, but the illustrations on each page would keep even the most dedicated picture-liking child happy.
If you're looking for a book to read aloud to your four to five year old, give Frog and Toad a try. You won't be sorry.
