My son got this for his second birthday and we love it. It's such a sweet story and the illustrations are great! It's not really long which is great for us becuase we have trouble getting him to sit still for very long, but it's also not too short either. Get this book for your toddler!
My daughter has loved this book from the moment we brought it home! My husband and I love to read it to her. It has such personlity written into each page and the illustrations are beautifully done. McBratney and Fuge are a terrrrrific combo for children's books. I even went back online to find more books written and illustrated by the two because we love this one so much.
Oh no! Little Roo the kangaroo is feeling grumpy.He doesn't know why. He just is.He's so grumpy, he doesn't even feel like playing. Now that's grumpy!His mother is determined to change all that. She wants him to smile and says he'll feel better when he does.She tickles him. No luck. She flips him over her head. No luck. She throws leaves on him. No luck.Nothing she tries is working. Little Roo won't budge a smile.Not until his mother slips him in her pouch and hops, hops, hops and then slips, slips, slips into a muddy hole does Roo do the unthinkable. He actually cracks a grin.I Love It When You Smile is a sweet mother and child story for parents to enjoy with their children. The book is aimed at children ages 2-6 and will dazzle young children and even adults with its illustrations.
One of my favorite books ever! Such a cute story about a crabby little kangaroo. The mother tries to get a smile out by doing many things, but it turns into something silly that gets them both laughing. Describes my serious daughter perfectly!
Such a wonderful sweet book, similar in spirit to the author's previous 'Guess How Much I Love You'. The story is simple, but fun and full of warmth, and the illustrations/art are terrific. Definitely a new favorite in our household.
My toddler cannot stop "reading" this book - she's memorized all of the words and just sits and reads it to her dolls over and over again (sometimes at 3 a.m. when she wakes up and sees it on her nightstand). I guess there's just something about kangaroos getting all muddy that she can't get enough of :)
i love the author and illustrator!! the story is so fun and sweet and the pictures are so beautiful. it is one i always always enjoy reading and my kids (4, 2) enjoy it too. highly recommended!
I got this for my daughter when she was 5 and she is now 8 and we just LOVE this book! She loves the pictures and thinks the book is an all around fun book to read. In fact, she now reads it to me! It has fairly large print, which is great for her because she can't make out small print. Basically, we love this book and I would recommend it to anyone with children!
