A contemporary grandma tale that has a sweet take on how much babies and toddlers love the phone. Cute illustrations and a nice rhythm to the text. I especially like the message at the end - talking on your phone at the table is very rude (it's not too early to emphasize this if cellphone etiquette in the library is any indication).
I like the concept of this book but I feel that so much more could have been done to make the lift the flap parts more engaging. A clue as to what would be under the flap would draw the children into the story more and allow the reader to ask the child questions and point to clues about what the hidden animal is.

I can't wait to try this one in Family Storytime! It's a cute read aloud about a little boy who tries to call his Grandma but keeps getting the wrong number and calling a variety of wacky animals instead. I know my Storytime kids will love to make the phone noises!

Corbin loves this story about a boy that is trying to call his grandma, but instead dials the number to sheep, cow, duck, and crocodile. My son loves the phone, so this was a great read for him. The illustrations are sweet too.
