“This is a book with no pictures. It might seem like no fun to have someone read you a book with no pictures. It probably seems boring and serious.
“Here is how books work:
“Everything the words say, the person reading the book has to say.
“No matter what.
“That’s the deal. That’s the rule.”
Thus this book begins…
Silly words to read and sentences to make the reader seem silly are at each turn of a page. The reader talks back to the words with a notion not to read anymore. PLEASE! But the reader must go on for the children listening will want to hear it all and hear it all from YOU, the reader.
It’s fun, silly, and “preposterous.”
I smiled as I read it to myself. I couldn’t help it. : )
“ma GRUMPH – a – doo
And I called myself a monkey and have a hippo friend named “BOO BOO BUTT.”
“Warning on the back to the adult being asked by a kid to read this book. Beware.”
It is just silly fun and kids will love to hear you read it again and again.
