By C. Shores on January 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
Lars Klinting has written quite a few books about these two busy beavers. In Sweden they are named Harvey and Chip. In the U.S. translations, they are named Bruno and Felix. These books have been translated into more than 15 languages. "Bruno the Baker" is in our 2nd Grade Reading Book. The kids just love this little story. We make the cake and they really enjoy the whole activity from start to finish. I can't imagine why these Harvey or Bruno books are not more well known. My first exposure to them was in our Reader. I highly recommend these little easy readers. The beavers are so endearing. They complete a project in each book - a great educational angle to writing a children's book. Mr. Klinting also does the illustrations and they are really great! I hope he will continue to write more of these books. I love each of the books I have purchased about these little beavers.

After ordering this book just after looking at the sample pages from Amazon, I'm amazed. The writing is excellent and the illustrations are detailed and beautiful. Harvey bakes a cake, step by step, doing so just anyone really would do it. The book even includes a recipe so you can bake it yourself with your child!

I have all books about Harvey, my kid loves it very much, he can learn so many new words. illustrations are wonderful. This is one of the few books you really need to have at home, and not the one you read and donate to the local library or just through away. 100 percent satisfaction guarantee!

Harvey the Baker is about real-life baking. The illustrations and words are thoughtful and pleasing to the eyes. I love reading it to my two year old granddaughter who tends to be serious. She examines every page as Harvey and his friend Chip go through the process step by step. It's also a valuable lesson in friendship and respect. It's a lovely book. I highly recommend Harvey's other adventures too.
