Fans of PAT THE BUNNY will like this next step in the series. MAY I HELP YOU? is one of those rare titles that actually helps children learn courteous and kind behavior. It is not as impressive as PAT THE BUNNY, but, then, PAT THE BUNNY is in a class by itself. I purchased it for use by my Granddaughter (age 6) with her baby sister (8 months). I don't think the baby is ready to read it with her older sister, but her older sister read and enjoyed it. The next step is for the older to read it to the younger when the younger stops eating all her books (okay... I might have been premature in my purchase ... but it is low in cost and easy to store).
Bottom line: PAT THE BUNNY is a must-get, and MAY I HELP YOU? is a cheap and easy addition. :-)
My daughter loves this book. She is 3 and is learning to help out at home. This is a sweet little Golden Book (love Amazon's price for Golden Books!!!) which shows Paul and Judy and Bunny helping out their parents at home. In the kitchen, in their rooms, in the garden, and even through a bath and bedtime routine. Asks little questions to make it interactive for children (there are no sensory pages but the questions keep the child engaged) and I love that it shows Paul and Judy working together. This sets a nice example for young siblings.
This would be a great gift slipped into an Easter giftbasket, or with other Pat The Bunny toys and books (there's a dvd too) as a baby shower gift.
No, it doesn't have the fuzzy pages or sweet-smelling flowers of the original, so if you're looking for something exactly like that, you'll be unhappy with this book. But, it's actually a really sweet book, perfect for toddlers. Each page is interactive ("Paul and Judy help clean their room. Where should they put their blocks?" then your kid gets to point out the giant box for blocks), which is really great for toddlers/ early preschoolers. The whole thing is about how great it is to help out with chores and stuff, so to the extent that that lesson gets absorbed, there's a little extra bonus (still waiting for my almost-3-year-old to suddenly volunteer to set the table).
