review 1: Disappointing picture book about a common situation.It starts off with a promising situation. Three kids hate visiting their boring aunts and uncle, who answer every question with one of the three words in the title. The illustrations are cute and I was initially engaged and amused by the kids antics as they try to provoke their relatives into another response.Where this story goes wrong is when the kids imitate their relatives.I found this offensive. It is not okay to make fun of people, and it is not okay to let kids think it's okay. And children should be taught to respect adults. Not all adults are fun for kids, and that's understandable. But that doesn't mean kids should tease them.While the aunts and uncle find the kids' imitations charming and the ice is finally bro... moreken, in real life, feelings could be hurt.
review 2: Every once in awhile I am reminded of that very phrase that I find myself saying to kids "Don't judge a book by its cover." I admit it, I was judging this book; it looks rather stupid. After reading just about every other book we checked out from the library I finally grabbed this one to share with my daughter and SURPRISE we both really liked it! Every week boring Aunt Essy, Aunt Chanah and Uncle Sam come over to visit their sister's family. The three children dread these visits because the relatives always say the same dull statements again and again: Oy! Feh. and So? The poor kids finally snap and show their aunts/uncle exactly how monotonous they are. Instead of being insulted their family was able to laugh at themselves and actually attempted to have an engaging conversation. We all have family members like this, so the story was relatable and fun. less
