Little One Books Review and Giveaway...


Thanks to Little One Books, we recently had the chance to review a relly fun book, Orangutan Tongs:
About Little One Books:
"Five years ago we had our first grandchild. From the moment we saw her, we knew that being a grandparent was one of the best things that could ever have happened to us. Today we have five grandchildren, ages one through five.
In the thirty years that have elapsed since raising our own children, we've never lost sight of the important role that books, music and video play in a child's early life. As we sought out appropriate material for our granddaughter, we were overwhelmed by the variety of products available. Only after a long and arduous journey did we stumble across the restful bedtime music we'd been seeking in the form of an exceptional music box set that offered soothing sounds for tiny ears. Even though she is now five, our granddaughter still enjoys listening to what she calls "soft music" while going to sleep.
Our search would have been so much easier had someone been able to guide us. That's why we created Little One Books - to help others make informed choices from among the vast amount of material available for children today.
We specialize in quality books, music, and video, for children birth through age five, and have personally reviewed and selected each and every item in our store. You'll find detailed information on why we prefer a particular product in our "Why We Chose" section of each product page. At Little One Books, we match each product to what we believe is the youngest appropriate age group. However, our carefully selected items can and will be used for many years to come. As children develop they often find pleasure in revisiting illustrations from old favorites, and eventually learning to read them on their own."
About Orangutan Tongs:
Age: 5 Year-olds Title: Orangutan Tongs: Poems to Tangle Your Tongue Author: Jon Agee Publisher: Hyperion Books Format: Hardcover
"Have you ever gotten tripped up trying to say a silly succession of similar syllables? Of course-everyone has. It can be sometimes frustrating, but it's always funny. For example, you know New York's unique, but did you know that unique New York's also pretty chic? And if you switched your wristwatch with a new Swiss watch, could you tell which wristwatch was which?
Wordplay master Jon Agee tackles these and other tricky tongue twisters in a funny new title featuring his equally hilarious artwork. The combination will leave you speechless.
Why we chose this book-
Jon Agee's Orangutan Tongs is a completely ridiculous and hilarious book. It is filled with tricky tongue twisters that will entertain your little reader. The book has a very unique point of view, and its clever rhymes will keep your child fully engaged in the story.
The book is filled with very funny illustrations that perfectly match the poems. Most of the poems are short, but they might take a bit longer to read as you might have to stop and think about how to say the phrases. The rhymes are bouncy and entertaining and will certainly maintain your child's interest."
What we thought: Both of the kiddos really enjoyed listening to B and I when our tongues got totally twisted while reading this book. The poems are funny and engaging and A had a lot of fun trying to say them without tripping over her tongue:) Little One Books has a large variety of really great books, DVDs and CDs for kids 5 and under. They have a lot of classics and many I'd never heard of, but that sounded really great. This is a really great compilation of kid-friendly media and one of my favorite features was the option to search by age group. I love that each book, DVD and CD is hand-picked and the reasoning behind the choice to feature each item is written under the book description. Little One Books is a really big help in finding wonderful, appropriate material for the little ones in your life:) ABCD Diaries gives Little One Books an A+!
