Reviews - What do customers think about Boing! No Bouncing on the Bed (This One and That One)?
Bad, Bad Book Apr 22, 2006
What an awfull book. It is difficult to read through the choppy dialogue. The plot doesn't make any sense. Jane Seymour seemed to have forgotten that kids aren't stupid and do have imaginations. Comparing this book to Dr. Seuss is laughable. As I was reading this book to my children, my youngest said it best, "Daddy, please! Why are you not stopping??" Steer away from this book.
REMINDS ME OF MY OWN KIDS! Apr 13, 2005
"Bounce on the sofa, Bounce on the chair, This One and That One, Bounce Everywhere!"
Actress Jane Seymour and her husband, Actor James Keach, are among the latest celebrities to jump on the children's book bandwagon and are doing so very successfully. They've created a wonderful series of books in which their family of cats stand-in for their own family, allowing them to share their own experiences as parents and at the same time delighting children with the tales of their twin kittens, "This One and That One."
"Boing! No Bouncing on the Bed" is certainly a tale that any person with young children can relate to experiencing. The twin kittens wake up in the morning, bouncing on their beds and having a great, old time. The game is moved to the parent's room, and Big Jim Cat and Lady Jane are soon awakened by the frenzied jumping of the twins. Time for breakfast as the action moves down stairs, and the bouncing game continues on Big Jim Cat's favorite chair and the sofa, much to his annoyance. Lady Jane finally takes a turn in trying to stop the bouncing when the kittens move back to the bed upstairs but Big Jim Cat is in for a surprise when he goes up to check on the kittens and Lady Jane.
Very enjoyable effort although be prepared as it will soon have your little ones playing their own bouncing game. The book is beautifully illustrated by Geoffrey Planer with a colorful, cartoony style that appeals to children. The book is a 32 page, sturdy hardcover with dust jacket. It's always nice to find new, and outstanding books for kids and Jane Seymour and James Keach have created a grand new series for kids and parents.
My kids love all of "This One & That One" books! May 18, 2004
I think that Jane Seymour and James Keach have found a formula in children's books that has not been matched since the legendary Dr. Seuss. All of the books in their "This One & That One" series are adorable, and completely engaging to our children. I would highly recommend this for any parents wishing to encourage reading and thinking within their children. Great stuff!
Not very well written Jul 3, 2003
Jane Seymour is a very talented actress. Unfortunately, she isn't anywhere near as good at writing children's books. The text of this book is choppy and is simply awful when read aloud (the poor writing actually gets in the way of the storytelling). My kids do enjoy the illustrations, but they do not like having this story read aloud to them.
