5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 11 Sep 2008
Our 15 month old has two fascinations in life - dogs and balloons. Ever since her first birthday (when she first spotted a balloon) she's been smitten with them and 'blm blm' was one of her first words. Naturally, I couldn't resist this book! It's beautifully illustrated with bold, bright pictures (lots of rabbits) and the story unfolds in simple rhyming verse. She loves it. (As an aside, it comes with a dust jacket which I removed as it was never going to stand the wear and tear of a toddler!) Great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars All about counting and colors 17 July 2007
By Armchair Interviews - Published on Amazon.com
One morning, a mysterious rabbit floats over town in a hot-air balloon, releasing thousands of balloons on the unsuspecting population below. The adults are confused and frustrated at the mess the balloons make, but the children are delighted, quickly choosing their favorite colors. At the end of the day, the balloonist sails on, leaving behind a colorful gift to mark his passage.

Dee Lillegard's rhyming, yet simple prose, is sure to delight children. The rhyming stanzas lend themselves to being memorized.

"Selena gets a pink one

A squiddy-black-ink one

A white as a sink one

Balloons Balloons Balloons"

The repetitive nature and minimal vocabulary of Lillegard's tale makes it perfect for beginning readers.

All the necessary ingredients are present in Bernadette Pons' captivating illustrations for Balloons, Balloons, Balloons. Bright colors and lots of small details fill these spreads, providing endless fodder for the game of "can you find the..." Children will giggle with delight at the disruption the balloons cause adults; glasses get knocked off their faces, cereal is spilled, and a game of tennis is interrupted.

Armchair Interviews says: Help the child in your life determine their favorite color and then help them learn to count as you hunt for all the balloons of that color in Balloons, Balloons, Balloons.

I'm a children's librarian, and at the advice of one of our employees, who said her grandson "shivers with excitement" whenever she reads him this book, I read it to my story time. The kids loved it! They hung on every word!

This is a great book. My 16 month old daughter really enjoys the beautiful pictures and the rhyming word patterns. She is able to clap with the pages that say "Snap, Snap, Clap, Clap, Balloons, Balloons, Balloons".
