Beep and Bah: This book is supercute – since I read it first, I have read
it so many times over already. The kids love it too and cannot resist returning
to read it. Beep the robot and Bah the goat, along with the many other animals
they meet on their adventure are delightful.
who has not wondered where a single sock from each of our pairs has vanished to?
Well, in this story, when Bah finds one single sock early one morning and goes to his friend Beep, Beep decides that the best thing to do is go find out where the missing sock has gone and takes Bah along with him on the adventure. There is minimal text in the story and the illustrations convey a whole lot bringing whole new meaning to ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’. Readers of all ages can enjoy the book and follow the story without a problem. The illustrations are fun, silly, and bright and engage the reader from the start to the end. The end – it is perfect! Both my son and I are trying to see if I can come up with a new adventure for Beep and Bah and enjoying making up stories in our mind for now. In the meantime, I just hope the author/illustrator of this continues to create more adventures for Beep and Bah for us to enjoy.
