Review: All The Things You'll Do! by Kevin Glavin


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

Two parents sing to their first child, imagining all the amazing things he will do. Inspired, they all race out the door to get started! A fun, positive book with joyous illustrations. For ages 1 and up.
Following the story, additional space is provided for children to plan their own dreams and keep track of their accomplishments. A true keepsake.

MY TAKE:

I like children's books that offer a little something new so I really appreciated this book.

All The Things You'll Do! is told from a parent's point-of-view as he/she tells his/her child about all the experiences that they can look forward to.

My favorite thing about this book is actually the activity space at the last half of the book. It's the perfect way for kids to keep track of their growth, kinda like a diary. It may seem like a chore to fill up something like this, but it's a nice thing to look back on when the kids are older.

Thanks to NetGalley and Kevin Glavin Publishing for the e-ARC. Publication date of All The Things You'll Do! is on June 5, 2012.

THE GOOD:

  1. The coloring is nice.
  2. The story is enjoyable even though infants and might not understand it all.
  3. The activities.

THE BAD:

  1. The illustration style may not be for everyone.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
It was the first time -- you gripped our hands and you made them warm.
READ IT IF:

  1. You're looking for a book that you can read to your kid until he/she is 10.
  2. You are looking for an activity/children's book.
  3. You like "sweet" books.
