My Review: Rose
I love this book. It is just adorable. But more importantly, my little boy LOVES this book! It seems to be one of his top picks. The pictures seem to really capture his attention.
The stories or ryhmes are very sweet and written for the younger readers. There was one paticular sentence that might need a little explaining. "Joseph's coat-colorful, bright-Helped to put him in a plight." Plight isn't the most common of words! :) I totally understand its need for rhyming, though. Otherwise, it was very appropriate.
As far as the cover, the color scheme seems more targeted for girls, since it is a light pink. I've been keeping it in my little boy's diaper bag, though, so I by no means have let the color pink keep him from it.
I absolutely recommend this book for all children!
