5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Fun 18 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The book was recommended to us by a family member. We bought the book for our twins who love the book more than any other. It is the repetitive nature of the story makes it a winner, at 18 months old the twins could anticipate the storyline, and gleefully call out the next words. The artwork beautifully brings the story to life. The book clearly is a classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars We love this book "SO MUCH"! 8 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback
Successive family members arrive at the house on a sultry summer afternoon, each announcing themselves noisily and expressing their love for the toddler in their own individual way. Each time, the commotion dies down until the next arrival, everyone apparently waiting for something to happen - but what? All the while, the toddler revels in the attention he is receiving and the family delight in his presence.

We've had this book for a few years now and I've recently started reading it all over again - this time to my youngest, who is just 3. Initially, it took me a while to get the hang of the text and it annoyed me that there were, apparently, grammatical errors. I kicked myself when I eventually realised that it's meant to be read with a lilting West Indian rhythm and that the language is actually perfect for the genre. My older two daughters, aged 6 and 5, now creep into the room to listen, unable to resist the charm of the characters, the vibrant illustrations and the poetic rhythm of the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly written book and a wonderful story. 21 Mar 2008
By Allan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What an absolutely brilliant book. I used to read it, accent and all, to my Daughter almost every night before she went to bed. The pictures are So Good too. 10 years later, I still remember all the words!
You must buy this and give your kids( and yourself) a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars It has stood the test of time 8 Feb 2007
By LizyM
Format:Paperback
A pleasure to read, a pleasure to hear and a pleasure to watch the sheer delight on my children's faces as they absorb the colourful illustrations. I bought this when it was first published for my son who is now 14. Having survived him and his 11yr old sister I am now reading it to my 2yr old. The older ones still join in but now there's an argument over who actually owns the book! So I'm online buying three new copies to settle the dispute. I wonder if I should buy a few more for any future grandchildren...?

5.0 out of 5 stars We've read this 'So Much'! 3 Sep 2008
By AH
Format:Paperback
So Much
This book is brilliant - loads of repetition and really shows the different relationships the baby has with his family. I've read this book to my son loads of times and each time it's a pleasure to read and we've both got smiles on our faces when the books finished.
