Awesome book! Jan 21, 2008
This book and DVD are a must! My kids love it and we sing the Chicka Chicka ABC song all the time. I now buy it for gifts and the kids just love it!
doesn't flow Oct 21, 2007
I heard this was a great book, but it was disappointing. There's no flow to this book at all. I kind of felt like it was missing something. . . I now realize that there's another version that is more complete. I do not recommend this board book at all. Honestly, not even for babies. Just because it's a sturdy board book to chew on isn't a good enough reason for me!
Not like the original one Jul 13, 2007
I had really liked the original version of this book which is meant for slightly older children. So I got this for my 14 month old daughter. She is least interested in it although she loves books and has many favorites. I didnt like it much either. There is no rhythm and the text doesnt flow very well. In fact, the last few pages just contain a bunch of alphabets thrown in as if in a hurry to finish the book. There are better books out there!
A new baby "basic" Jun 27, 2007
Have to have this book if you have a newborn. Scholastic has a really fun DVD that adds a fun carribean inspired tune to the book too. My children have LOVED this book since they were very young and still respond to it.
maraca upset May 13, 2007
I ordered this book knowing that I liked the content, but I was very excited about the bonus shaker....my 7 month old son didn't let go of it for a day....the second time he dropped it from his high chair it broke in two, which was sad. it was very cute for the day and 1/2 that it lasted.
