This in itself is a bit disturbing.
Mary Jo Prado
There was no description that I could find to alert me of the fact that I was about to waste my money on tiny books.

Kids love them as they have a great story, good rhythm and they are funny.

I happen to found this book at our local library and check it out thinking that my 6 year old would enjoy it. Much to my surprise it was my 2 year old that was so engrossed by the baby in the hole and Robin desperately looking for her a home. The tone of voice that you can use to read this book will captivate your children too. ENJOY! WE DID.

I was so disturbed by this book! A little girl finds a baby in a hole in her sandbox... then she proceeds to walk around town by herself trying to give the baby away to strangers. At the end... a truck driver takes the baby! (As the truck pulls up to the curb... the little girl is sitting on the curb holding the baby and the picture looks as if the truck will run over them!) I found myself back peddling while reading this to my 5 year old. I had to use it as a "lesson" in what NOT to do if you find a lost baby. Not sure why this is considered such a great and cute children's book.

I liked this book. We got it from the library. It was pretty good because I like babies and I like to be kind to babies. I am five and almost three quarters and my sister is two. She liked it too. It is neat looking for someone to take care of the baby.

This book is scaled down to be just a couple inches tall... palm sized. This is just silly. Do not buy, unless you like to read with a magnifying glass.

Format: Paperback
Murmel, Murmel, Murmel is cute for the most part. A little 5 year old girl finds a baby in a hole in her sandbox, then looks for someone to take care of the baby. In the end, a truck driver takes the baby. The story is short, ends abruptly, and the media has plagued me with far too much of a fear of what random men do to children, so the ending feels uncomfortable. When I got the book, I pulled it out of the box and read it to my 2 year old with my friend and husband visiting/listening. The other adults with me were even more weirded out than I was. My daughter, unfazed, enjoyed it and has wanted to read it twice tonight.
Munsch writes off-beat books. I like his stuff. This isn't my favorite.

What a rip off! We ordered this book for our school and when it arrived, it was tiny. There is no way anyone would want these little tiny books that look like they should come free in a box of cereal. We are very disappointed in Amazon. We ordered several hundred dollars worth of books for our school to start the year off and about 4 of them arrived like this. No where is it indicated that these are tiny books. I have learned the hard way to watch to make sure they are not board books but this is just as bad.

Reviewer: DelAnne

Five year old Robin finds a baby in her sandbox one day and decides that she will find it a home. When I chose this book for review from NetGalley I thought it sounded adorable and it is funny and kind of quirky. It is told in an easy simple form so that small children can understand it with some lovely illustrations that mirror the story beautifully.

Unfortunately after I read it through first I was reluctant to read it to any of my nieces or nephews. With the media full of the awful things that happen to small children and babies today I did not want to influence them to even think of emulating Robin. This is the first book by Robert Munsch that I have ever read. I like his writing style, but not the overall content of this particular book. That may not bother some, but if this is his usual subject, children placing themselves in parallel or neglected by no supervision, then I am afraid I shall not be reading any others.

If I had not been so disturbed by the way it ended I would have given this book a five out of five, but because I was I am giving it a 3.5 .

Murmel, Murmel Murmel by Robert Munsch is a children’s book about a little girl who finds a baby in a sandbox and must look for someone who wants a baby. She asks people that she sees on the street, an old woman, a lady in fancy clothes, a man at a bus stop, but no one she asks wants the baby. Then a man drives up in a truck and says he wants the baby and the little girl can have his truck.

This is a quirky silly book that young children will enjoy. The adult might be a little concerned about what happens to the baby but children just thinks its a funny book. The book is written with simple sentences using words that a young child will understand. The illustrator, Michael, Martchenko, has done a great job. The illustrations are vibrant and colorful and a good compliment to the story. I would recommend this story to any adult who enjoys reading to their child.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thanks NetGalley and Annick Press for the opportunity to read this book.
