The illustrations in this book are cute, but dated. One glance and I'd think this book was from the 1990s, not 2015. HOWEVER, it is a great read! I can't wait to try it out in storytime. I think that it's interactive and short enough for my toddlers, and that preschoolers would especially get a kick out of it.

Basically, the characters in the book list things they like, starting with the places the bear likes to sleep. They each list three regular things, and then a fourth ridiculous thing - like

SUMMARY: Three friends talk about silly situations they imagine such as sleeping on cookies or eating books.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The pictures were created in oil paint. They are soft, colorful, fun and full of smiles.

REVIEW: What I like about this book is it teaches young children about the difference between real and pretend. The story invites interaction from the listener who can say, "No, Silly," every time an imaginary situation is shown. The book shows real situations first, "I like to sleep in m

I really liked this book about several different animals naming all the things they like to do. Each one has a certain refrain of a I like to read, ride or play and then a silly thing at the end of there five or so things that doesn't fit the category. cute ending to where all the animals are featured going to bed.

The illustrations are bland and amateurish, but I thought the main conceit (animals doing something wrong, which prompts the refrain, "No, silly!") might make it a fun storytime read. Even though I didn't love the illustrations, I'll probably get it for my library based on its appeal as a read-aloud.

This book is about a couple of friends talking about what they like to eat, drink, read, etc, but once in a while one of them says something silly. Eg., I like to eat books! No Silly! Perfect for younger toddlers. Kid's loved it.

Cute, simple book of things you do when you're a toddler. Also includes several things that toddlers like to joke about doing when they actually do the opposite.

Good for toddler storytimes.

Going to be a fun addition to a story time. Not exactly stand alone book, but good one for crowd participation.
Simple and quick with a good refrain and a conceit that'll make it a good participatory read-aloud. Didn't blow me away, but I know it'll work well with the toddler crowd.

Great for an introduction to humor/what's not right type of situations for toddlers and young preschoolers. Nice, simple text.
Love the refrain and the silly examples. I can already hear little voices correcting me in storytime!
