This book is silly, fun, and clever.

Now, let's start with the cons, and then move onto the pros, which far outweigh the cons. The cons are that the illustrations aren't wonderful, the metre of the rhyme is imperfect, and the story lacks plot.

That said (now onto the pros), even though the illustrations aren't wonderful, they are fine. And the most endearing thing about the illustrations is that the same little mouse appears in the background of every page, even though he may have nothing to do with the story. It's just fun seeing him appear on every page. It's like, "Oh, there he is!" If he were missing from a page, we would have been missing him.

The metre is only okay, but the rhyme is good. This book isn't at the level of Dr. Seuss, John Lithgow, Julia Donaldson, Karma Wilson, or Mr. Meus, but it's better than most of the attempts at rhyme in other children's books. (Perhaps the above authors, and my own sense of metre, have spoiled me.)

Even though the story has no plot--it's just a list of random "do"s and "don't"s strung together--it's not really meant to have one. But one thing it does have is a cute and clever twist to the ending. The end of any book determines the taste in your mouth that you leave the book with. And this book's ending tied everything together nicely, neatly, cleverly, cutely, and with a slight twist. And so the reader is left with a good taste in his mouth...good enough for me to give it 4 stars.

When it comes to cute Kindle books, Hawksley is king. This one doesn't disappoint and might by my favorite of the bunch. It's silly and the illustrations are vibrant and look equally good on a phone, table or the Kindle Fire (and yes, the kids like it so much we've read it on all those devices.) Highly recommend!

Cute concept for a kids book, but gets a bit redundant rather quickly. The pictures are funny and my 4 year old liked it.

"Don't Juggle Bees! And Other Useless Advice For Silly Children" is an absolutely delightful book! Gerald Hawksley has written an easy to read-aloud rhyming advice book - one that incorporates the absurd silliness that young children find so amusing. The rhymes are done well, without the awkward and forced attempts at poetry that so many children's e-books exhibit.

The simple, colorful illustrations add another fun dimension to this book.

I laughed aloud as I read it for the first time and can only imagine the pleasure my grandson will get from hearing the hilarious "advice".

Some clever illustrations were the only strong point of this book. The "plot" was lacking in cohesion and wasn't very interesting. It appears the author believes the ability to rhyme a few words is enough to constitute this story. "Jake Bakes Cakes" by the same author is much better.

I read this story to my four year old daughter and she completely loved it. She giggled through it and when it was finished she wanted to read it again and again. I wish it would read to her since she want to keep reading it.
