    One thought on “Did you take the B from my _ook? (Books That Drive Kids Crazy, Book 2)”

    1. I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this is just a knock-off of BJ Novak. It even uses the same font.

    2. Fans of B.J. Novak's the book with no pictures will like this one. A great read aloud. Kids are going to love it.

    3. Like This is a Ball this book is fun, although it is harder to read because the words without B are harder for children to get their heads around. There is less complexity in this one as well.I think this one is just fun, it does still suggest a collaborative approach and allow for the agency of the reader/s and so it still has value but to me it had nowhere near the textual complexity of the other one (which probably was intended by the authors just to be "fun" as well). To me these are better [...]

    4. Review originally published on my blog, Nine Pages.This was an excellent book for those beginning to read. It was good for a small story time audience (I had only 2 children). The book’s text puts underscores in place of Bs and so the kids had the chance to sound out the words with the simple illustrations to prompt them. The mystery (and it was really only a mystery to the younger of my two audience members) of what the text said was more intriguing than the plot—the plot, such as it was. T [...]

    5. Wonderful! I love how the reader and the listener will interact with each other, and the book. The story is also cute. The colors are bright, and the actual pictures large and centered with space around, making this a good book to show to a larger group and everyone will be able to see. Reading this aloud is a bit of a tongue twister-you want to add in the missing letter, and read with a steady flow, but you have to stop and actually think about each word. It isn't difficult, and kinda fun once [...]

    6. In this book it is obvious that the author is trying to make their readers think. However, I did not like the book because it was very confusing. On every page until the end the "B" was missing out of one or more words. The concept makes a kid think about spelling but also I feel like it would frustrate a child as it even frustrated me. I definitely understood the concept the author was trying to get across but it made it hard to read. I would not recommend this book to teachers or parents unles [...]

    7. I used this book with a seven year old who has speech/language struggles as well as with my own five-year-old and they both loved it. It is entertaining and yet simple and presents a great opportunity to play with removing and replacing the first sound of words which is a key skill to build toward reading. Love it.

    8. This book is desperately trying to be B.J. Novak's The Book with No Pictures. Even the format and type face are similar! Originality is lost in the authors' attempt to emulate Novak. You will be thinking, "Haven't I read this before?". However, children will enjoy the tongue-twisting, missing "B's." Be prepared when you read aloud.

    9. Read this one for the first time with the nieces and nephew. They thought it was hilarious. Another one I wouldn't have necessarily called for myself but they laughed and laughed. Not much of a story but like The Book With No Pictures it's more the language they love.

    10. Clever and colorful book that requires readers to fill in the missing letter (here's a hint: it is the letter "B!") in order to grasp the words. Would make an excellent selection for youngsters just beginning to get the hang of reading.

    11. Yes, stylistically it is very similar to The Book with No Pictures. But will kids love it? Yes. Will it be an effective read aloud? Yes. Will it help build letter knowledge? Yes. Too bad the publisher didn't choose a different design, it's a clever book.

    12. I just kept trying to picture reading this out loud and in my head it was always awkwardybe it would work better for those who are more confident in their letters. Also, I wish it were more clear that the sneeze is what got rid of all the "b"s in the book.

    13. I am dying to read this out loud for storytime! Alas, my library doesn't have it so I will have to wait impatiently until we can get it. It is so funny and interactive that I know the kids will love it just as much as I did.

    14. Great idea for a book. It will get kids thinking about the letter 'B' and when added to a bunch of letters, what word it will form.

    15. This book is fantastic for story times and to get the kids recognizing what the pictures are and what is missing. Great for beginning sounds.

    16. Simple, colorful, and bright illustrations combine with a fabulous sense of humor.Great for preschool storytimes.

    17. I didn't enjoy this as much as the authors' other books. I think it's one you've got to read along with a kid. But still a fun concept :)
