That Is Not a Good Idea! by Mo Willems (Children's Book Review)

Hey Everyone!

So today's review is a little different from the norm, because it's actually a review of a children's picture book that I read for a project in my Children's Literature Class.  I had to make a puppet representing a character from any children's novel intended for ages 0-5, so I picked That Is Not A Good Idea! by Mo Willems.

This will only be a short review, since it's only a short book, and I don't want to give away too much!

From Goodreads:


That Is Not a Good Idea! is a hilarious, interactive picture book from bestselling author and illustrator Mo Willems, the creator of books likeDon’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, the Knuffle Bunny series, the Elephant and Piggie series, Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs, and many other new classics.
 
Inspired by the evil villains and innocent damsels of silent movies, Willems tells the tale of a hungry fox who invites a plump goose to dinner. As with the beloved Pigeon books, kids will be calling out the signature refrain and begging for repeated readings. The funny details in the full-color illustrations by three-time Caldecott Honoree Mo Willems will bring nonstop laughter to story time.


My Thoughts:

This was such a cute read! It was recommended to me by the librarian at the school I work at, and after I finished reading it, I knew it had to be the book I make my puppet for!

Oh by the way, if you're wondering, this is how it turned out...


I HIGHLY recommend this book! In fact, I want to get it one day when I have kids!

I'm really loving this Children's Literature course, because honestly, I haven't read all that many children's picture books, at least, not since I was in that age where children read them.  So having an excuse to read so many great, award winning ones is so nice!

Overall Rating:


Like I said, I highly recommend this one! It's cute, funny, and has the most unsuspecting ending ever!!  it shocked me and my co-worker, who I gave the book to read afterwards while we were on our breaks in the teachers' lounge.

Definitely check it out if you get the chance.
