Jen’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
REVIEW: This was a cute no words book. It may seem a little on the bland side with nothing really big underneath the flaps… and guess what, my daughter didn’t really care. She loved this book!
Peacocks are one of her favorites and the fact that we can make up the story as we go every time, made her love it that much more. She likes to chime in with her take of the events and show me the flip ups and downs of the book instead of me doing that.
She especially loved the big reveal almost to the end of the book. I was not allowed to open it up for her, and I am more than ok with that lol. She took over with this whole book and made sure to give me her take on ALL of it. And I LOVED that part. When she interacts with a book it’s nice to know she likes it, but when she wants to tell it all on her own, I know she already loves it. It then becomes part of our shelves for a very long time.
