Reviews - What do customers think about Rata-Pata-Scata-Fata: A Caribbean Story?
wonderful Mar 10, 2007
I checked this book out for my duaghter at the library and we loved it so much I had to add it to our own library collection. The story and illustrations are simple but it is so sweet and a nice introduction to life on the caribbean. The reader can anticipate what Jun Jun will say (which young kids love) and the ending is clever and fun. It's also a great book to read if your at a stage of wanting to give your own little one some chores of his own.
