Top Customer Reviews
1. The illustrations are much more basic and lacking in detail. There is more blank dead space on each page than other books. Additionally, the illustration components are the exact same ones in other books. I understand keeping a look or theme, but seriously, it's like a copy and paste job.
2. There really is no reason not to have a child on the Africa page. There is plenty of room for 2 giraffes, a hut, a sun, and several trees. Major oversight...whether it was purposeful? I'm not sure. Many decisions in the production of this book seem shoddy.
3. Six of the eight textures ARE THE SAME fake fur type material just cut to varying fiber lengths. The different materials are a bumpy "wool" for the Scottish sheep and a smooth PUL-type for the India elephant's ears. This is quite boring for an exploring little babe! Also, the fibers shed like crazy. I'm constantly picking strands off her hands and brushing them off my pants or couch. I would expect higher quality materials in a children's book.
4. The actual text leaves a lot to be desired. In other books there are cute rhymes and/or educational facts. Every page in this book follows the format of, "The (animal) in (country) (does simple action like eat or run or sleep). Pet his (body part that has fur)."
I sadly expect that the sole aim of this book is profit-making in the touch-and-feel market. If this is your only experience with the series, don't be turned off. The Guess Who book and others are great!
