This is a great collection of seven wonderfully illustrated colorful backyardigan adventures. I got this for my three-yr-old daughter who is a huge Backyardigans fan and she could not put this book down when she received it. She was extremely excited pointing at the characters in the book and retelling the stories...especially since the book contains most of her favorites. The illustrations match the scenes from the tv shows exactly. Here are the stories in this book:
1. Race to the Tower of Power
2. Pirate Treasure
3. Secret Agents
4. Mission to Mars
5. Say "Please!"
6. The Secret of Snow
7. The Polka Palace Party

This nice, sturdy book is a great value at less than $9. One word of caution though, you might have to read this book to your child from cover to cover every single day... but that's alright with me!

I bought this book because my son loves Backyardigans. I was glad to see that it was almost exactly like the episodes he's watched on television. Other similar books are VASTLY different from what we see on the screen, so it's weird to read them to him. With this book, he already knows the story and is very excited when he can "predict" what might happen next. We read it every day.

We LOVE this book! I'm a mommy and a licensed family childcare provider and this book is one of the kids' favorites, getting daily use and still looking in awesome condition. The kids enjoy the stories, all of which are short stories about several Backyardigans episodes. The stories are at about grade 1 or 2 level for children to read by themselves, but our 1 to 6-year olds enjoy having us read the stories and understand them all. The pictures are wonderful, too, helping children to draw meaning from the pictures and make up their own words to the stories, based on the pictures. This is an effective book for fostering a love for reading and improving literacy skills. It's a hardcover, very durable, and the pages are thicker than typical paperback children's books (I know as I own more than 1000 of them). The price is INCREDIBLY reasonable for the amount of pages and stories in it, and it's a MUST for your little Backyardigans fans. We own 10 other Backyardigans books, but I wish I had purchased this first since the kids enjoy this all the time and seldom read the others. This is a perfect book for your childcare, school, or home!

My 3 year old son loves this book. He is a big fan of the Backyardigans, and we've read this book from cover to cover many times. The stories are very similar to the videos, just shorter. I've also caught my 6 year old, who is "too big for the Backyardigans" reading it too.

Our 3 year old daughter takes this book everywhere with her. She loves all the stories in the Big Book. We read at least two of them every night before bed. Anything that gets your child so excited about reading is a great book. We have to cut her off and tell, "No we can read more tomorrow." And then we do. The Backyardigans are one of the best books and DVD's made for preschoolers. They are NOT violent or extremely inappropriate for them --ie Sponge Bob and etc... It exposes them to dancing, singing and teaches some lessons and manners as well. It gets our daughter interested in not only dancing and moving around while watching the shows, but also in reading. I would definitely recommend these books and DVD's to everyone who has a toddler.

This book is a great value for any parent with a child who loves the Backyardigans, or even for those that aren't familiar with the characters. Almost every night since the book arrived, my three year old has chosen one of his bedtime stories comes from the seven included in this book!
The stories are from episodes of the Backyardigans television show, but the adaptation is done much better than most books that use specific episodes of a TV show as their source material. The illustrations are colorful and uncluttered, and the length of each story is perfect for bedtime. Highly recommended!

I bought this book for my daughter who just turned 3. She devours books and cannot get enough of them. She also has a new-found love of the Backyardigans. This book gives the best of both worlds...familiar Backyardigans stories, and lots of them! Seven stories to entertain and delight any fan (even new ones, like my girl). The illustrations are bright, colorful, and true to the show. The stories are simple, but fun...perfect for any toddler or preschooler. I don't even mind reading them over and over again! A great value for great reading fun now and in the future!

This book is great because it actually tells the story with pictures AND WORDS! It's great to read to your little one at bedtime (or any other time). The stories & pictures follow the shows that your child may already know, so it makes it that much more fun. We are Backyardigans fanatics, so this has been a great adition to our "library of Backyardigan goodies!" My 2-1/2 year old son LOVES the shows, the songs, the toys, the stories, and now this book too.
