REVIEW:Illustrated by Kelly O’NeillPublisher’s Synopsis: When a loving father finds an elephant in his bathtub one morning he decides to take matters into his own hands. As he travels from room to room he discovers more animals making themselves quite at home. What’s a Dad to do? When his son arrives home from school he’s in for quite a surprise. Dad has gathered all of the animals together in his son’s room for quite a safari party! At the end of the story we find that Dad has a wonderful imagination and has created a sweet story out of his son’s animals left around the house.Ages 4-8 | Publisher: Belle Isle Books | December 10, 2018 | ISBN-13: 978-1947860261
Before I get into the book itself , I just have to mention the look of the book . The cover and quality of the book is just like an old school, perfect reader akin to the original Sesame Street books or to Dr. Suess. The illustrations are great. Every animal character so cute and life like. The pages are laid out wonderfully and the illustrations jump off the pages. I love how they actually fit the story as well. The story itself is such a great read. A perfect bedtime or anytime read. It would be cute to read and treasure hunt with your own little s stuffies along with the story. Most pages are only a few lines also so a great early reader for the little in your life that can read.
Such a great story to share with my 6 year old. He loved it and could put himself in the shoes of the boy in the story . I am sure we will be having a stuffie animal party in the near future thanks to this great read.
Great gift for all the kids in your life, maybe for the teacher to read to the class as a class gift even a great donation for children that need some magick in their life.
