47 months - O thinks this book is silly but doesn't really like the illustrations... go figure as a Caldecott honor book. We just don't get it... at least it's a quick easy read. ( )

Delightful and transcendent. A book to cherish.

I really don't know what to say about this book, except for sillyness abounds. ( )

The pictures are cluttered, however, I find that that helps in the little games of identifying where the tree is (every page shows the tree growing in the rain, demonstrating that rain really does make applesauce, as the refrain goes) and who's saying "You're just talking silly talk" and noticing this detail and that one.

And this book is just a list of various nonsensical statements, but I don't see that as a problem. Not everything in life has to make sense, after all :) My nieces love this book, and I'm willing to read it to them, and that's good enough for me. ( )
