To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love it! Solid book. Easy for my 9 month old to turn pages and seems sturdy enough to last. This book is based off a children's nursery rhyme. I'm not sure if there is more then one version of the rhyme (there probably is) but it was a little different then what I grew up reciting. Instead of saying
The third one said, "But I don't care".
The third one said, "Good folks beware".
Overall awesome book. The illustrations in it are really adorable. Full of fall colors purple, orange, deep reds. They're really what make this version stand out.
Here's the rhyme this book uses. Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate; The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late". The second one said, "There are witches in the air". The third one said, "Good folks beware". The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!" The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run". "Wooooooo" went the wind, And out went the lights. And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
The illustrations are fantastic. Whatever medium (pastel? chalk?) the illustrator used, the illustrations are beautifully rendered. The classic kid's rhyme is altered from other versions, but makes more sense (There are witches in the air / Good folk beware!). My kids love pointing out all the little details in each illustration.
I've bought an extra copy to save for posterity, so my kids can read this version to their kids. Yes, I like the illustrations THAT much.
This is a great little book with gorgeous illustrations. It’s the perfect length for my 11mo old who has trouble sitting through longer books. He loves turning the pages on this one. Excellent story for the Halloween season!
What a great book for children! This book has been around for a while...my son is 39 and when he was 5 years old, had to memorize it for his class. It was no problem. He loved it so much he went around the house reciting it all the time. I had the opportunity to buy it for my grandchildren so recently purchased a new copy of the book for them. The illustrations are darling and go so well with the story without frightening small children. Get this little book for the small children you know. You'll be so glad you did!
