I Would Tuck You In Reviews
I Would Tuck You In is satisfying to both reader and read-to child on several levels: the closeness of parent and child is evidenced over and over as the author describes the bonding habits of many animal species. She also "footnotes" many little facts that tie in with each parent-child bonding activity, and these make great points of departure for discussion during or after the reading session. Significantly the illustrations are amazing: beautifully drawn, they are close enough to reality to ensure the truth of each animal's bonding activity and richly colored and simple enough for even the youngest tot to identify. The text and its message are clear to children, especially from ages 2 and up and are endearing to adults of all ages. This book is fast becoming a great favorite in my family.
I bought the board book version as a gift--we have the hardcover/paper pages version & really like it--and the board book doesn't have the facts about the animals that the other version has. The description of this item made it seem like it would.
Easy learning about animals of the northern wilderness as they tenderly show how they love and care for their young. The main story is a reading level = read to pre-schoolers. Our 6 year old read many of the words himself. In smaller print on each page, there is added information about each featured animal. These are discussion triggers such as "to avoid predators, the common octopus can lose an arm and regrow it later on."
Super Cute book. My 4 year old son loves it and got a little emotional during parts. I recommend it. Sweet, simple story.
This book is beautifully written and illustrated with pictures of parent/child animals in nature. The main theme is loving unconditionally, but each animal has an informative fact included on the page. This would be a beautiful baby shower gift as well. It is a loving narrative to read at any time, but especially tucking your child into bed. The last words being " I will love you forever for who you are."
Perfect gift for my grandkids. My husband and I had just returned from Alaska and it had all the animals in it that we had seen.
Good price and fairly good delivery.This was a gift and
This book is well written. Our daughter is a new Mommy and loves Otters, so the cover was perfect. Then we read the book and it is filled with lots of different images and animals. It is by far our favorite book in the baby's library.
