"This is a sweet, humorous 16-page children’s book."
This is a sweet, humorous 16-page children’s book. Each page has a beautiful illustration and a few lines of text. Harold is a young boy who is having trouble hearing what everyone is saying. This is quite a problem as what he does hear, does not make sense to him and he often gets the wrong idea about what other people tell him. He mishears the librarian and his teacher, and this provides some amusing situations. The funniest situation is when Harold’s mom bakes a Bundt cake, but Harold thinks she has made a “butt” cake”. Young children will agree with Harold that this is indeed a very strange type of cake to want to make, and they’ll get quite a laugh from that! Harold is also unclear when he is speaking and others don’t understand what he is trying to say! Luckily Harold’s dad realizes that Harold needs a trip to the ear clinic. Read the book to find out what the problem with Harold’s ears was and if it could easily be sorted out. A bonus for readers is that on the last page, the author explains what a Bundt cake is and also provides a recipe to try. I’m sure children from about age 3 to 6 or 7 will love this entertaining book!
