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 take on this book:
Let's face it life gets busy but with Eileen Spinelli's book Busy, Busy ! youngsters are going to be reassured that no matter how busy their mother might be she will always have time to share her love and snuggle with them.
This is a sturdy little book that will withstand young hands, and many readings. The pages and covers are hardboard and shiny which would be easy to keep clean, and the rounded corners to the front of the book are great. The illustrations are vibrant and bright, I found myself smiling at the various animals as I turned the pages. I can see youngsters wanting to read along and I would think it would be great to point out the various animals on the pages. Written in a rhyming prose that flows smoothly. This book is really geared toward mothers, whether you're a stay at home mom, or work outside the home, life is always busy and this adorable little book would be perfect for reminding your youngster that you are never too busy to spend time with them! I can just imagine this being a great little read right before naptime or bedtime, or just anytime you want to snuggle with your youngster.
