Top Customer Reviews
I'll definitely check out other books by this author, I was very impressed by The Pile Up.
Those of you who read aloud to your children or grandchildren will know that it makes a lot of difference when the rhyme 'works'. As you read, you can build up the pace and the rhythm and then really dramatize the 'oh NO!!!" type of pages when something disastrous happens - and don't kids love that?
This book's a corker. From the first page I thought "This author knows what she's doing!" How could kids not get involved right away with an opening like this:
Get out your skateboard,
Get out your bike,
Get out your scooter,
WE'RE RACING TONIGHT!
Top marks to this author on the humorous ending, too. It will leave both kids and adults feeling satisfied.
The illustrations are bright and interesting... and you'll find there's a special bonus! The author is an ex-teacher, and she's provided some terrific fun activities on her website (I just spent ten minutes doing a clickable jigsaw puzzle!) as well as some great worksheets. This book would be an excellent purchase for anyone home-schooling, with all the bonus activities. AND for frazzled mothers on wet days or during a long school vacation.
Top job, Ms. Adolphs!
This is a fun, attention grabbing, well-written and illustrated short story. Not only that but you can also go to the author's website and download FREE Activity pages which are not only fun but also educational! EXCELLENT! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
