Busy, Busy by Eileen Spinelli, with Illustrations by Elina Ellis


Sometimes, when life gets hectic and schedules get crowded, children may feel a little lost in the shuffle. In this new board book, the animals are all quite occupied. Beaver is busy; squirrel is busy; frog is busy. Mole is digging, bear is fishing, and cat is pouncing. And like many parents, Mama is busy too. But she's not too busy for a hug! Children will love the busy animals and the warm conclusion. This lighthearted, lyrical book will gently reassure children that, in spite of how busy their families are, there is always time to share love. Ages 2-5.

My Thoughts:

Busy, Busy is a super cute book! It's full of lovely animals, and the illustrations are superb. My Bumblebee(3) fell completely in love with it, and has slept with it every night since it arrived at our house.

The scenes have so much to explore, and the closer you look, the more you'll find. The attention to detail was wonderful, and it's also nice that the pictures are so bright and appealing for little eyes, without being overwhelming.

The main point of Busy, Busy is that mommy always has time for her little one(s), so this is a perfect book for a mommy and child to read together. It's a sweet book, and I'm sure it will get plenty more love in the years to come.We've definitely been enjoying it!

"Mommy's busy,
always busy.
She has lots of work to do.

But she'd never
be too busy...

for a cuddle-up with you!"
