This book deserves 5 stars for the illustrations alone! It has some of the most detailed and beautiful pictures I’ve ever seen in a children’s book. All of the animals in each picture have their very own personality and they’re just so cute and quirky! Whether it’s a squirrel with a mohawk, crabs building sandcastles, sharks attending school, penguins swordfighting with swordfish, a fruit salad chameleon or mosh pit bats and rats, there’s so much to see and laugh at. The story is simple, repetitive and fun for kids, but the real stories are what’s happening within the pictures. I adore this book!
Once Upon a Blurb
The bear went over the mountain
To see what he could see.
What do you think he saw?
You won’t believe what the bear sees over this mountain!
A forest of squirrels singing,
Setting ears a-ringing.
Golly gosh! Oh my! Oh me!
It was a sight to see.
