Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite
The children’s picture storybook, How Do You Do? by J.R. Poulter, is a cute little tale. In this book, Poulter educates children on how different farm animals greet everyone and say hello. This charming picture storybook features both the adult animals and the baby animals. I chose to read How Do You Do? with my six-year-old daughter because she loves animals. She liked all the different animals that Poulter included in the story very much. Her favorite thing was to see how different each hello was from an adult animal and a baby animal. She liked the piglets the best.
My opinion of the book is that it is really cute for young readers, or to be read to beginner readers. The wording is pretty simple and easy to read for young children. It was a little too easy for my daughter, but she was still able to enjoy it. The illustrations by Barb Dragony were very well drawn, colorful and eye-catching. I liked that the pictures showed both the adult and the baby animals. Children can see how different the older animals look from the younger ones. I think that this is a good story for young children, and this is a lovely book to have in pre-schools in particular. My daughter wants to know if J.R. Poulter will write another book featuring animals and please to put a flamingo in it. My daughter and I look forward to reading more of J.R. Poulter’s work in the future.
