This is a great ebook to read to your young children. This ebook has some great Illustrations and is an ebook you can read over and over again and the kids will love it and the adult will too.

I am in my 70's and I liked it very much and recommend it very highly.

When my 3 year old daughter asked for an ereader last Christmas, she received an Android tablet with Kindle for Android (as well as other ebook applications). It seems that only recently have illustrated, color children's books began to come to the Kindle. So I was elated to find an indie illustrated, color children's book!

The cute, colorful pictures are great even for children that can't yet read - they can guess the rhyme from the picture, as well as try to find the bird in each picture. The easy to read rhymes are great for new readers. The "story" itself is cute and kept my daughter hooked. This book also has much better formatting than any other illustrated children's Kindle book I have seen.

If you have young kids, buy this book now!

Do you like to ask questions?

The author, Gerald Hawksley, has written a fun book for young children. I remember when my two year olds would ask questions, and I would try to answer the best I could. In this book ,many questions are asked, and the questions are all answered. However, these answers are super. All the questions and answers are done in rhyme. What a fun time for all.

Parents/teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The questions and answers are so much fun, the children may laugh and squeal, as will their adults. Some of the answers are so silly, like:
'If you have a bed bug. You put him in a bed'. Everyone knows you don't want bedbugs in your bed. The illustrations are bright, vivid and beautiful, and they depict each question and answer. A fun book for the entire family.

Original review published at Ian Wood's Novellum.

If You Have a Hat sounds like a Lyle Lovett song title, but it's really a young children's book of fun nonsense. I like children's books to try and offer some educational content if possible, but that doesn't mean there can't be room in your collection for those which are purely crazy, of course. Besides, what is there to do with a smile if you don't put it on your face? It's wasted! Now that's educational!

From the author who brought you Spot the Duck and Don't Juggle Bees neither of which I've read, but both of which seem eminently sensible titles, comes this lengthy (for a children's book) collection of colorful drawings and ridiculous rhymes. It begins, "If you have a hat, put it on your head. If you have a bedbug, tuck him up in bed." I'm frankly not entirely convinced of the wisdom of that latter idea, but definitely hats are in order if you live under a sweltering sun. It would have been nice if the bed bug had been gender neutral, as indeed their choice of victim is, but it's a minor issue in a full book of fun - minor as long as you're aware it's an issue.

You can't argue with the good advice to help seeds grow into flowers, and to build towers with bricks. Who doesn't want to build a tower when faced with a pile of Lego bricks? I mean, come on, they're asking for it! We get boats and Band-Aids, cameras and chickadees (okay so maybe it wasn't. Leave my alliteration alone!), music and hippos. This author seems very fond of hippos, by and large. Especially large. But at least they're clean hippos.

No one can argue that music requires dancing. Even if you're laying in bed listening to this story you can dance with your fingertips or try to dance your tongue on the end of your nose, right?

The rhyming text and colorful illustrations make "If You Have a Hat" a cute, enjoyable story for toddlers through kindergarten age. There's no actual storyline, but the rhyming lines and illustrations introduce simple vocabulary words and images of everyday objects like cameras, ships, airplanes, and apples.

It's a fun book with a bit of learning for youngsters.

I downloaded this book for free from the kindle store. It has a very cute and simplistic story line that is easy for little minds to follow. The illustrations are also simplistic and fit the story very well. It clearly is a silly rhyming picture book, but that is what makes it so fun for little children to follow along with. I would download other works from this author for my child if they were offered for free from the kindle store.

This was pretty good. I didn't think it would be at first, but my daughter enjoyed following along. I followed the writer's advice and paused before I read each rhyming word. My daughter was actually able to guess the correct word in the screen (I have the ebook). Plus, she smiled and laughed when we finished reading. I'm glad I got this book.

This story has an easy flow to it, with plenty of rhymes. It is perfect for children who are just beginning to read. The pictures are colorful, which is pleasing to the readers.
Teachers can use this book in the classroom to help with rhyming,can be used in paired reading, and independent reading.
