Editorial Reviews

Review

"Illustrated by Ewa Podles in a digital format makes the story bright and colorful. I love the names of the family members. Chess Nut, Hazel Nut. Super cute. It's our current favorite bedtime story right now." - JaMonkey.com

"Another nice feature is the list of acorn facts on the last page.  This gives a parent or teacher an opportunity to take a fun book and turn it into a learning experience." - WillsLibrary.com

Format: Paperback
This review consists of 2 parts: 1. My son's review (he's 5.5) and 2. My review (the Mom). These are excerpts - for the full review visit us at our website.

**The Nutt Family by A. Muse was provided to us free-of-charge by the author.**

SON SAYS:

What I liked and disliked about it:

I really liked the pictures in the book, especially the picture of the family tree in their house and the one where they are floating in the water. But I didn't like the picture of the squirrel because I was scared the squirrel was going to eat them. I also really liked the story and their adventure especially when they are in the water. I liked that it was a story about a brother and sister because I have a sister too and we like to do things together too. We would look after each other too.

My bottom line:

I really liked this book. I would recommend it to both girls and boys my age.

MOM SAYS:

What I liked and disliked about it:

There are many things that I really liked about this book. First, I love the illustrations: the Nutts are adorable and I really like how the illustrations are all from their perspective (i.e., everything looks BIG). I like the clever names given to the Nutts, especially Chess Nutt (ok, that one took me a while!) The story itself is very clever and engaging, combining the right level of tension with the touching loyalty and sibling love between the brother and sister. I also want to draw attention to and applaud the author for the inclusion of "fun facts" about acorns on the final page of the book. I really like the trend I'm seeing to include an educational component to children's books, especially ones targeting younger audiences (under 5 years of age).

Nutt family Hazel and Fillbert, along with their children Chess and Praline lived in an old Maple tree. The children tied leaves around their necks like capes and pretended to be superheroes. One day a woodpecker, pecking on their home caused Chess to fall from his knothole. His sister Praline jumped out to help him. Soon they found themselves in a real life adventure. This is a wonderful story. I loved the way the author gave each acorn the name of a different type of nut. When I read about them tying leaves around their necks, I was reminded of my sisters and I tying scarves around our necks pretending we could fly as we jumped off of the porch. I also loved the facts at the end of the book about acorns. Even though I grew up with lots of oak trees, yet I was still able to learn a lot from this book.

This book struck me as being different from the ones I've read recently. The heroes are young acorns acting rather like young humans, but still threatened by the things that eat acorns like squirrels and birds. There is an exciting story that should grab the attention of young children when their parents read to them.
There is also plenty of scope for the parents to talk about the story and about real acorns after reading the book to their children. At the end of the book are some acorn facts.

THE NUTT FAMILY: AN ACORNY ADVENTURE is another adorable story for children by Ms. Muse. She excels in entertaining little ones with adventures in nature. Her bright and colorful illustrations are once again eye-catching and help relay the story vividly. Unlike LIL GLIMMER, this story takes a few pages to find its rhythm. Regardless, Chess and Praline have a wild adventure after falling from their tree. It took me back to the times when I would find acorns on the ground and toss them around the yard. Poor acorns! I love the acorn facts at the end - rounded out with a quote for Ralph Waldo Emerson. Ms. Muse entertained my family with this one. We all enjoyed this "acorny" adventure.

Unfortunately the text has been formatted in pictures, meaning it is not adjustable, and is illegibly small on my phone screen. I just read it to my toddler from the computer, though, and we liked it, for the most part. The pictures are good, and fit perfectly with the story, which describes sibling acorns who get raked away from home and have to find their way home by working together. In their previous imaginary adventures big brother Chess had always rescued little sister Praline, but when it comes to real trouble Praline takes a lead.

This is a cute little story but the formatting of the book on my Google Nexus did not work meaning that the pics were never on the same page as the words and so it was hard for my 2 year old to enjoy this one as much as should would have if she could have associated the illustrations with the words I was reading.

A good children's author writes for her audience, not their parents or grandparents. I would have been fine with 1 or 2 readings of The Nutt Family, but this has been my 5-year-old granddaughter's FAVORITE of all the children's books I've downloaded to my iPad. I have lost track of how many times its been requested for the bedtime read. The story is cute, the names creative, and the characters thoughtful & loving. As another reviewer commented, a b/w Kindle format wouldn't do the book justice, but it's a delight on the iPad. Addie also enjoys The Pig Princess, from the same author, but for whatever reason never requests Lil Glimmer.
