Hott Review:

Some of the rhymes and drawings were okay but for some of us OCD types this wasn’t a good choice. My daughter couldn’t focus on the words because she didn’t like that someone colored outside the lines. I enjoyed the some of the poetry but it was confusing to her because it requires imagination and focus. I believe that this will appeal to a more artsy & imaginative family.
