really liked it
bookshelves: 2008, picture-books
Read in August, 2008

I like the story, it's cute, but I just can't get over the art. The animals looked too bug-eyed and vaguely possessed. However, my son loves this book and will bring it to me, wanting it to be read, on a daily basis. That simple fact, to me, means the book is more worthwhile than I originally thought. I recently added a star to my review (making it 4-stars) simply for the reason that my toddler son loves this book. Between this one and "The Crayon Box That Talked," one would never know he has an entire bookshelf FILLED with books to read. These are the only ones he wants. He wants them read over and OVER until I'm ready to turn Miss Moo into hamburger and melt every crayon in the house.

For the discerning parental reader, Miss Moo does have several good opportunities in it: it's a "side-by-side" book (the left hand page is meant for a child to read with big, bold letters and simple words), and it has some good opportunities for making goofy voices and animal noises your children will love. Then you, too, will want to make hamburger out of Miss Moo...

Jackie "the Librarian" Yes, "vaguely possessed" is not a quality I look for in my illustrated animals! Thanks, Kat, for the warning.
