Most children know the game Simon Says, but this book puts a different spin on the game.
I am taller than you.’
And he was.
He can pull harder than you, jump higher than you, run faster than you, climb higher than you, throw a ball further than you, finally finishing with ’I can eat more than you.’ It does not end well!
The second story in this wonderfully funny book is ‘Simon Did’. This story also does not end well for Simon.
The third and fourth stories; Watch me, and Watch me Now have slightly better endings.
This is a fun book with wonderful illustrations and sitting down with 4- year–old granddaughter Quinn made this a great experience for both of us. We were laughing our socks off at Simon’s antics and what we really shouldn’t do in life.
