Hip-Hop Lollipop

Hip-Hop LollipopGoodreads Says:    In this lyrical read-aloud filled with rhythm and rhyme and illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney, follow a little girl as she dances her way to bedtime. 

Mama says, "Lollipop, stop! Stop!
Jumping snapping nonstop."
Arms and shoulders pop 'n' lock.
Lollie's dancing hip-hop.

Watch as Lollipop grooves her way through her bedtime routine, brushing her teeth to the beat and shimmying into pjs. She sways along with her sister, her parents, and even some enthusiastic pets until, finally, Lollie closes her eyes and dances through her dreams. Susan Montanari and Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney offer a playful bedtime read-aloud that perfectly captures the joy of music, movement, and family.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My Thoughts:

-    The watercolor illustrations are delightful, and the text is often colored or situated so that it becomes part of the picture. It is really cool!

-    I must not be hip-hop enough to read this out loud. I struggled with the rhythm of the phrases at times.

-    The book is cute and fun, but there really isn't a story. The little girl hip hops her way through the bedtime routine. 

-    Gnome and I didn't care for the book too much. It was cute, but it wasn't one we'd want to read over and over again. Squishy didn't even want to sit through the book.

-    I think a lot of kids would enjoy this fun book, but it wasn't for us.
