One of the classics Feb 24, 2008
I am a special education teacher and this book has put many smiles on my students faces. It is one of our favorites. I'm still looking for the audio tape. If anyone know where I can find it please let me know.
My 5 year old loves this book May 31, 2007
We had gotten this book from the library several times and finally I decided I had to buy it for my little boy. He thinks it's hilarious especially when I do the "Bee Bee Bird" noises in a funny voice. A book about a bird who has to learn to be considerate of the other animals.
Beautiful book Feb 14, 2007
I have been a nanny for 21 years and every time I start working with a new family the first book I give to a two years old child is this book and let me tell you, it is a hit, they love it and they will know by heart the words of the book, because they make me to read it to them before nap time and their parents will read it again to them before they go to bed, and all they long they will sing beebeebobby. The only thing is I wish the book could come in board book, will be easy for a toddler to carry it around.
A real winner! Feb 2, 2007
My two year-old granddaughter is in love with this book! She first discovered this book at the library and requested it each time she visited. I decided that I should own one of her favorites to have at my house when she visited. The baby beebee bird is a cute story about sleeping and getting the days and nights mixed up. The illustrations are by Steven Kellogg, one of my favorites! His drawings have so much life and humor. The details on each page make for a great searching game, too. This is an all-time favorite! To my granddaughter it never gets old and to the reader it is a great time making the sounds of the zoo animals! Just the title is fun to say! This is a great time/read!
Outstanding Book Jan 15, 2007
This book caught my eye when I was looking for a book for my grandson. I didn't realize that this was his favorite book. My daughter told me that they could only find this book in the library, so they kept renew it for over 3 months. So when he got the book as a gift, he right away started turning the pages and started making the noise of the Lion and the other zoo animals. He really loves this book.
