My granddaughters are enchanted with Bobo and have been since they first got "Hug". I bought "Tall" for them recently and they enjoy
Hug was my 11 year old son's favorite book when he was a toddler. After a move, I found the book and handed it down to our 22 month old. She absolutely loved it. So the purchase of Tall was a no-brainer and it did not disappoint. Our babe loves the emotions of BoBo. The simplicity of the book does not overwhelm our toddler, and I feel gives her the ability to completely ingest the colors, animals and key words. She mimics the emotions of BoBo with such delight that I don't think it a stretch that this book is introducing basic principals of empathy.
To be honest, our (my husband & me) rate is little lower than "Hug" book. However, our kids love it. They like the illustrations of all the animals. It is very easy to understand these animals' facial expressions. Since we have been teaching our kids how we talk (communicate) our feelings, they are picking up pretty good feelings. Over all, it is still cute!
Jez makes the most charming children's books but his series with Bobo the monkey is just too clever. Jez makes a book with one word, really draws you into his illustrations and allows the reader to bring imagination to the story telling by interpreting a little differently each time. This is a must have for any baby/toddler reader. This is a book that grows with your child.
My pre-k students loved this book!
My 20 month old daughter loves this book. Anything to deal with all of the new concepts and vocabulary that she is learning just thrills her!
This book has very few words, but is such a charming, loving story about a child and mother. The pictures are so cute. My daughter borrowed the book from the library and did not want to return it after several renewals so I purchased the book. It is definitely a favorite!
My son received the Hug book for a gift and LOVED IT. I enjoyed making up a various stories to go along with the pictures. I purchased TALL as a special Christmas present to share with my little boy. The series is terrific, simple story lines, great pictures, easy to read with a little one. Great book. I do think HUG is slightly better :)
