Tiny Tot Reviews

Tiny Tot Reviews is a way for me to showcase some of the many children’s books that I read during my down time at the bookstore.

On her way to her grandfather’s house with a bunch of bananas, Beatrice has a series of mishaps with jungle animals who each substitute something new for what she is carrying.

I am a sucker for beautifully illustrated kids books, and this is one that immediately called out to me.

The vibrant colors and gorgeous pictures are definitely what earned most of the stars for this book, but the story is pretty cute on it’s own. Beatrice is on her way to her grandfather’s house with a bunch of bananas, but along the way she loses them to an animal who gives her something in return…and the process repeats several times.

It is a story I’ve seen around in other forms, so if you have one like this already it might be a skip for you. It is a cute, light read that its definitely something I can see a child picking up multiple times.

Despite the slightly repetitious nature of the book I do think this one makes for a beautiful book to have on the little one’s shelves.

4 stars
