This book was a buddy-read again

The review would have 2 points of view.

My review

I did not have such a book when I was a child. So when this book arrived, it appeared wondrous to me. Just to imagine how it would have been if I had been read this story every night before sleeping. (I was read fairy tales and other stories from Indian folk tales)

The book had alternate brightly colored pages which made me long to get out the crayons and start coloring the pics.

I liked the concept which allows a child’s mind to wind up and start relaxing, knowing everything in nature too sleeps when the sun sets. There is rhythmic use of words which would calm the child’s mind, whole going to sleep. I would recommend it to be read for kids between 1 to 3.

My tiny toy niece’s review who is not even 3

She is a great connoisseur of books, knows what she wants to read, even when she really can’t.

I showed her the first colorful page and her eyes went – wow. The subsequent diagrammatic page did not produce any reaction. I asked her to show me the cow which jumps over the moon. She refused and replied – aunty, cow does not jump over the moon. Cow goes moo. You don’t know anything. Well, that is that!!

Well I couldn’t refute the truth and I realized that she needed something believable, in tune with what she is learning. (she loves Dear Zoo)

P. S She is coloring the cow which jumps over the moon.

My verdict

The book is for kids for a younger age and it should be read a little earlier on so that the child gets the concept of night-time.

I am reviewing this book as a part of Jay’s Children’s Books Readathon challenge.

My rating : 4 stars

  1. How Do You Read So Much Books,In Such a Short Time,You Post a Review almost every Single Day, How’s That Possible,Is There Any Technique Mam

    1. Thanks for letting me know… There is another version of this? I didn’t know. I didn’t know about this book too till a few days ago

    1. Thanks Brian… I read it now… In my childhood we didn’t have this book at all. I enjoyed it.
      Thanks for your words… I am viewing this book in a different way with so many comments

    1. That is so sweet… I did not know about these books. I would have bought when my niece was younger, now she prefers the interactive ones where she is learning something new…

      1. The other one she loved was the kissing hand…i bought it for her when she first went to school…made me cry

    1. She is too small now… She understands what she sees… Maybe when she is a little older she will know what fiction and what reality is

  2. I used to read this to my niece all the time lol. Your age recommendation is spot on! My 4 and 5 year old don’t really like it. But my 2 year old loves it haha.

    1. Thank you… I wrote what my niece told me. Cow goes moo not over the moon. And she closed the book!!!! I was rolling in laughter at her logic

  3. I read this to my kids when they were VERY little. It is such a soothing thing to read to a child who is struggling against sleeping. The repetitive language, the cataloging of beloved objects and people…we loved this. Your niece’s reaction is cute!

  4. Great review! I think it’s great that you showed the book to your three-year-old niece. I laughed at the comment, “aunty, cow does not jump over the moon. Cow goes moo. You don’t know anything.” 🙂

    1. Hahaha I was just left gaping at her. She is logical so I couldn’t deny the truth. It was quite a surprise 😂😂
      I didn’t know about this book, so I thought it would be more genuine if I read it to a child. Thanks for your kind words

      1. I love when kids use logic and they leave you stunned with their amazing thoughts 😀

        I’m sure your niece appreciated you reading with her (and that she could leave you gaping, hahaha)! 😀

        1. I couldn’t help hugging her. My sis was rolling in laughter literally. My niece sat to color the blank page hahaha so I kind of helped her – guilty😅 I love coloring and painting with her… And suddenly she would pop up and say – aunty don’t color the face, keep within lines. Hahahaha 😂😂

  5. Ha ha!! Wonderful review! I love the perspective of your niece. 💖💖 All I can picture is Christopher Walken reading this book “scooch closer, children…. I SAID SCOOCH!!” 😂😂

    1. WordPress behaving funny, can’t edit any comment. I meant don’t know this guy or comment his, not mine.
      I read this as scotch initially 🥃😂😂

  6. I love this review, Shalini! It brought back memories. I read this one with my sons. That was quite awhile ago! How special you read it with your Niece!
