Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

Now you can enjoy bigger illustrations in this new English-only version of Li'l Lingo Can't Rhyme Tuba. Enjoy seeing Li'l Lingo jump off the page with fresh colorful images for kids.

Li'l Lingo eBooks create a fresh and colorful series for children. They are books children will want to read again and again. In this second book in the series, Li'l Lingo Can't Rhyme Tuba, Lingo knows her instruments. As a master of rhyme, though, she cannot find an ample rhyme for tuba. Laugh out loud as you read this eBook and observe Li'l Lingo annoy her friends in her efforts. Who will come to her rescue?

Mandy's Review:

I do like the fact that these books come in bilingual versions: English and Spanish. It's possible that there are children out there who will enjoy the simplistic story within. The colors in the artwork are vibrant and will draw your eye.

The drawings, while vibrant, appear as if a child drew them ... and perhaps they were. Maybe that is part of the author's way of drawing in children. I just know, as an adult, I didn't like them at all. For example, take a look at the cover. You can tell where Lingo is and where the front part of the tuba is, but what is all that yellow behind the tuba? Also, there's an angel depicted in one of the drawings in the story and it took me a minute or two of looking at the picture to see how exactly the angel's body was drawn. Again, this may be part of what is meant to draw children into the book.

The summary states that the reader will "laugh out loud as you read this eBook..." I didn't laugh. I'm not sure where the humorous parts were at. Perhaps I should have let my 8-year-old niece read it before writing this review so I could see how reading this book affected children. At any rate, as much as I hate to give bad reviews, I just do not like this book.
