Lulu’s Ballalam-Bam-Bam Grooves — Book Review

** I received the e-ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review**

Blurb:

There is nothing Lulu loves more than dancing by herself. With each new song, she practices the “Ballalam-Bam-Bam Grooves.” She slides her feet, claps her hands, and bumps her hips against a tree trunk.

There is just one problem. Lulu is a gorilla! When she stamps her feet and shakes the trees, she ends up disturbing all the other animals in her jungle home. Poor Squin Squirrel cannot even sip his nut tea without Lulu’s dancing rattling his tree home. Squin and the other animals try to tell Lulu that her dancing is disruptive, but they cannot get through to the gorilla.

Then, Lulu’s loud music and dancing ends up waking up the mighty king of the jungle. The angry lion Jhawfors then confronts Lulu with the problem. Will the animals be able to find a compromise?

This rhyming children’s tale imparts valuable lessons to young readers. Lulu does not want to stop doing what she loves, but she needs to understand that her actions affect others. Through Lulu, children will learn the importance of respect, compassion, and compromise.

Review:

It is perfect for 2-4 year kids. The illustrations are cutesy and colourful and bright that will easily attract baby, inquisitive eyes. The story-telling is in sing-song style, with rhyming words in every alternate line. The sing-song is also attractive for babies, so this book will be a great pastime.

Rating: 4/5
