Review & Giveaway: Who Said Coo? by Deborah Ruddell and Robin Luebs

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!
Who Said Coo? by Deborah Ruddell and Robin Luebs
Book Description: Lulu is one seriously sleepy pig. But every time she snuggles in her cozy bed, she's disturbed by the noises of two naughty birds outside her window. Whooooo ... Cooooo ... Lulu must find a way to get her wide-awake pals to pipe down. But as her frustration grows, will she be able to ask them nicely?

Brimming with pitch-perfect rhymes, fun-to-say animal noises, and heaps of humor, this book is a delightful read-aloud that's perfect for bedtime - or anytime!

About the Authors: Deborah - I grew up in a small Illinois town, the oldest of five well-loved children, and I was almost never alone. From day one, I had my twin sister, Robin, at my side – the ideal accessory for a shy kid.

We shared a room, matching clothes, and (to our mother's dismay) a deep devotion to the leisure arts: daydreaming, doodling, and watching the world go by.
Together, we smiled at the good and frowned at the bad, studied ants, drew pictures, and created elaborate scenarios in which we played the starring roles.
Today, when I write poems for children, I use the very same skills I learned in childhood every day. As it turns out, daydreaming, doodling, and watching the world go by are part of the job.
It's a job I love.
And Robin? She grew up to be a wonderful author and illustrator of children's books!

Here's What Think: My kiddos just loved this book. It is so artfully illustrated. This is a children's book with a great lesson - keeping your cool when you are frustrated. All three of my boys loved this book, and it passed the "read it again" test. I can always tell if they really did like a book, if they instantly as for it to be read again. We have already read this one several times and will be reading it more and more I am sure. I think this book would make a great gift for any preschooler.
