" Another fun read aloud with 3, 4, 5 year olds- set them up to look for parts of the moose, had them put a finger on their nose when they found it (rather than calling out). With even younger groups, would be great for rhyming and movement (as you tromp through the bushes, wade through the swamp). " said.

" This is a fun book to read. Lots of alliteration and rhyming. Also there are lots of things to point out on each page (animals etc) as well as some well hidden moose to find. Good read for F (24 months) " said.

" A group of children sets off to find a moose, which they have never seen before. They try several different approaches before their search is more than rewarded. This would be a fun read-aloud for young children as there are some great nonsense words used in the narrative. " said.

" Three and a half. Somewhat reminiscent of We're Going on a Bare Hunt in terms of descriptive language. It's also fun to hunt for the moose. Special bonus - there's only one white character among the children, the rest are children of color! The only vaguely disappointing part is that the ending is sort of abrupt. But definitely a fun read. " said.

" Kids really enjoyed looking for the hidden moose on the various pages and competed avidly to find them. Not a lot of substance but it was a fun, bouncy read that kept my listeners attentive as they looked for what the book characters couldn't see.As a side note, I used this as an intro for a scavenger hunt -- that was a big hit and a great segue! " said.

" What a great and fun read aloud! I would have given it five stars except that the ending left me unsatisfied. I would have liked it to tie back to the beginning in some way, that they looked for moose, and now they've found..."..a long-leggy, dinner-diving, branchy-antler, bulgy-nose moose."...Many of them! " said.

" Ok I may be biased, since I love moose and have always wanted to see one (well, from far away), but I just loved this book. It made me smile and laugh. It took me a few pages to discover there was a moose in the background on various pages, which made the book even more enjoyable. As a teacher, I love the great illustrations, the large font, and the great adjectives! " said.

""Have you ever seen a moose --- a long-leggy moose-- a branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose?"

Join 4 friends as they go tromping through the woods, squelching through the swamp, scraping through the bushes, and scrambling up the hillside in their search for a moose. This book has lots of fun action words and sounds that children will love to repeat. And if your child has especially sharp eyes, he/she will locate some surprises amongst the illustrations. Clever and fun, a great read-aloud.
