At times the story was a little crude. His manners "picked his nose, his ears, his rear. Oh my, oh dear!"
My five year old grand-daughter had a problem with the illustrations. She said they looked like monsters and not humans.
The font isn't adjustable and is small. You can magnify it slightly on each page, but it's a tedious process.
I give it a generous 3 out of 5 stars. It wasn't for us, but other families may have a more positive opinion.
don't know what you doing today and tomorrow night at the moment but I don't want it to me that the other day and tomorrow night at the moment in a good idea for the moment I am using this plugin for WordPress theme by the way to me know
It is written with a loose, rhyming style that makes the message seem less preachy and more accessible. As a few other reviewers noted, the rhyming style is fluid - it is not the same on ever page - however, it was easy to read aloud to my kids. I personally felt this added to the story as it had an almost sing-songy flow, which makes it less preachy.
The drawings are all in the same style as the cover. They are simple, but they match the story and are great for small children. My daughter (4) thought they were cute and was actually inspired to try her hand at copying them. Since she is only four, she wasn't successful, but I like a book that makes her want to try!.
As for readability, the book looks great on the Kindle for PC. The images scale up to a size that is easy to see and read, but as one reviewer mentioned, the text is not editable, so it can't be enlarged if you plan to read it on a smaller device like an iPhone. Of course, this is always a choice with children's Kindle books. If you make the text editable and there are more than a few words, then the child can't see the picture as you read the story. If you make the text & picture one same page the story flows well, but you can't enlarge the text. There are pros and cons of each. But all of my children prefer the stories (like this one) that show the text and the pictures at the same time.
Although the book says "Text to Speech" is enabled, since the story is all part of the page image, your Kindle will be unable to read this book aloud.
Anyway, this review would be longer, but I have to go because my little one just asked me, "Can you read me that story again?"
It's very short so it makes for a very quick read. I didn't find it made a good bedtime story, but it does make a good "let's take a 5 minute play break and read a story in the middle of the day" kind of book.
My 4 year old seems to take to it. She's asked to read it again a few times.
