We rated this book:


Stuffed animal friends are enjoying autumn by bike riding, meeting new friends, and picking apples. They decide to celebrate the harvest and friendship by having a feast they call Friendsgiving.

The writing is off. I feel like sometimes it rhymes and sometimes it does not. It’s fine having the character say things, but how the story is written I feel like it should be separate from the main text somehow. The flow is not great and difficult to read out loud. The characters seem to do fall things, but the plot doesn’t feel cohesive.

The illustrations are interesting. I didn’t love having real-life looking stuffed animals in the pictures. The background is fine, but the stuffed animals themselves don’t really make the story appealing to me. I really had high hopes for this being a cute story and it just didn’t seem to work well.

My three and six-year-old didn’t enjoy this book because of the odd illustration choice and the flow becoming difficult to read. It was not a book they asked to read again. Age recommendation: Three to Five
