Review: Nibbles



Title:  Nibbles

Thoughts: We've actually had this book for a while, but I tend to avoid paper (vs board) books when it comes to my little one. She's better now, but she used to roughly rip pages in books, and it drives me insane. Sure it's by accident, but I think the bibliophile in all of us can agree that we live our books pristine and as perfect as the day the were born printed. Anyway, my reading assistant grabbed this book off of the shelf last night and said "Read this to me.". Who am I to say no to her?  After all, she's in charge of our picture books department




Nibbles is about a little yellow monster who loves nibbling on books.  He gets out of his cage one day and begins nibbling his way through other stories.  Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood, and even Jack and the Beanstalk!  Eek!

As the story goes on, you see yourself flipping through these books and finding the narrative has changed thanks to good ole Nibbles.  It's adorable.  Nibbles will scare some characters, anger others, and even possible save a few.  It really is a fun book, and C (my reading assistant) loved turning the pages to see where Nibbles wound up next.

It's an interactive book where you can search for Nibbles, try to catch him in his cage, and just smile as you read these "retold" classic tales to your wee one.  We both had huge smiles by the end, and now it's one of our favorite bedtime stories.  If you're interested, there's even a Nibbles plush out there to go along with your book.

Word of caution- My daughter thinks Nibbles is pronounced "Nipples", and lets me know she has two "Nibbles" on her body.  We laugh it off, but it definitely caught me off-guard when she pointed this out.  Too funny.

If you're looking for a cute, fun, entertaining book the entire family can enjoy, I highly recommend checking out Nibbles.  I do recommend it for children two and up though, because I don't think it would hold my daughter's attention if she were around the one year age range mostly due to the length of some of the pages.  It's not long, but it's not one year old attention span short (if you know what I mean).
