Format:  Hardcover/Board book

Rating: (1-5, 5 is a starred review) 3

Genre:  Picture book

What did you like about the book? The format of this book is a cross between a hardcover and a board book. The cover is padded and the pages are very thick cardboard, but not as thick as a board book. This is a book about a little boy who puts his hat on and takes it off many times during the day, depending on his activity. One page has a full picture and the facing page has the text, which is geared to very young toddlers.

Anything you didn’t like about it? This is a cross between a board book and a hardcover. It has a matte finish, so wiping the book clean might be a problem. The content is for very young children, but because it can’t be cleaned, it might not be appropriate for daycares.

To Whom Would You Recommend this book? This is for toddlers, 1-3

Who should buy this book? all libraries

Where would you shelve it ? Children’s Books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?  Yes

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Sandra Pacheco, ESL teacher, Washington, D.C.
