Pass It On!

Pass It On!
Marilyn Sadler
Illustrated by Michael Slack

                Bee can’t find his friend, the cow. When Bee finally finds his friend, he realizes that Cow is stuck. Bee dashes off to find someone to help him. He asks his friend Frog for assistance and returns to Cow. Frog, in turn, passes on the message of help.  Each time the message is repeated it gets changed just a little bit. Soon Bee and Cow are joined by a large group of animals wanting something different based on the message that they received. Cow gets the assistance she needs and offers to feed them honey and milk as a way to say thank you. The book plays on the popular children’s game called telephone and each message rhymes in some way as it’s passed along. The detailed and expressive illustrations help tell the story and add a touch of whimsy. It is simple enough for an early reader to be able to read solo.
This book is geared towards ages 4 to 8.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.
