2.0 out of 5 stars love the book, hate the size!, December 15, 2010

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Monster at the End of This Book (Sesame Street) (Big Bird's Favorites Board Books) (Board book)
first, I should make it clear that I love this book, it was one of my favorites growing up. I read it in a regular edition to my daughter and she seemed to like it almost as much as I do(she is 19 months so her sense of humor is still developing, she'll get there!).

since she is still a young toddler I decided to get her the board book edition and I am sorry I did. it is tiny! in some board books this wouldn't matter, in this one it doesn't work. so much of the humor in this book lies in the page layout--you lose all of that since the book itself is so small.

I disagree. We have the board book and my kids enjoy as much as I did when I was a kid. I don't think the smaller size takes away from the fun of the story.

Thank you! That is exactly what I figured. I wanted to buy this book for my grandson as it was my son's very favorite book. He would recite it word for word, with all intonations, at about 18 months old. But I wanted the same larger size, and none of these books list dimensions. I wasn't sure what I was getting. So I guess I should NOT get something called a board book, but look for "hardcover" instead. Wish they'd just all put dimensions in their descriptions.
