Review: Hip Hop

Hip, Hop (Portuguese Edition)Hip, Hop

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hip Hop / 978-1595722669

According to the back of this book, the book is available in English/Spanish and English/Portuguese -- to be clear upfront, the book I received for review is only in English. It may be available in other languages soon, though, as there are only 25 words in this book. I counted.

This is a cute book for infants. My copy has five animals -- a bird, a rabbit, a dog, a fish, and a cat -- and each animal has a short description of what it "does" and how it "sounds". The descriptions are black text on a full-page of color, opposite a drawing of the animal in black and white. It's fairly simple and cute enough, though I don't know if the book is worth the current asking price in terms of repeat enjoyment. I imagine the book is something that would please most infants, though.

The copy I reviewed is an electronic copy, so I can't speak for the quality of the hardcover (which I normally wouldn't speak to at all, but I figure when babies are apt to be gnawing on it, it's worth a mention). So I would recommend checking the other reviews, since this is a "content only" review.

NOTE: This review is based on a free electronic Advance Review Copy of this book provided by the publisher.
