I was Blessed to receive The Great Bellybutton Cover-up by Susan Ross for review.
Publisher: Susan Ross
Violet’s been sheared and she’s very embarrassed. Everyone can see her bellybutton! Being an extremely creative sheep, Violet comes up with hilarious and imaginative ways to solve her dilemma. Violet’s antics will enthral children as she dons cotton candy, chicken feathers, balloons and finally ends up back in her own wool. Make a sheep. Instructions included. For children ages 2 to 8.
My Little Guy recently started finding his parts and when I tell you that this kid is fascinated with his belly button that’s an understatement. He takes his index finger and jams it so far into his navel I swear he is going to unwind his stomach! It’s hilarious. So I thought he would really love the story of Violet, the sheep who looses her wool and finds her belly button!
This adorable book is full of colorful pictures by Megan Stiver! The story is fun, easy to read and holds My Little Guy’s attention on most nights. Susan Ross, enclosed a note with a Reader’s Digest Version of The Great Bellybutton Cover-up, which I though was great for those nights when the baby is very tired or extremely antsy!
Here’s what she wrote: “Reader’s Digest” version can be read to really young children. For example:
- Page 1. Violet’s at the fair.
- Page 2. Uh Oh! The farmer’s cutting off all her wool. Everyone can see her bellybutton!
- Page 3. Violet goes around the fair to find something new to wear. What’s she going to find?
- Page 4. Cotton Candy! “I look pretty in pink” Violet says.
Of course all the while we are looking at the great pictures and flipping through the book pointing to Violets bellybutton and then to My Little Guy’s bellybutton talking about bellybuttons! This is a fun book that’s sure to please parents, grandparents and little people alike!
*Attention craft lovers!! The end of the book contains a step-by step guide on how to make your own Violet! We are going to do this when the baby gets a little older. It looks like a really fun and easy craft and all the materials can easily be found at the dollar store!
Please check out all of the wonderful children’s books by Susan Ross!
