My thoughts: The combination talents of Spinelli and Ellis has crafted a delightfully sweet and charming rhyming board book that goes through a whole gamut of critters and how are busy each of them is - even a tiny spider is busy weaving. Sized just right for the wee hands of little children and charmingly filled with characters busy being and doing what they each are prone to do, Busy, Busy! can easily become a favorite and one that is carried from place to place sweetly treasured by your little one.
|Notice how in this picture kiddies can find very small details to match the rhyme - even down to the tiny spider weaving his web.|
Cat is busy--yarn's a-tangle.
Cricket's busy in the weeds.
Spider's busy at her spinning.
Mouse is buy nibbling seeds.At the end, the little ones are told that mommy, too, is busy, busy but she is NEVER too busy to cuddle YOU! Great lesson in the value a mother places on her child and values the child over her own work.
Guaranteed to be a warm, fuzzy, loving reading experience for mommy and her little ones.
I have reviewed books by the author, Eileen Spinelli, and also books illustrated by Elina Ellis. Always a pleasure!
