REVIEW: Oh Dear Geoffrey! by Gemma O'Neill

This is a sweet title to read aloud and share during storytime, and can be included in themes of friendship and empathy.

Geoffrey is tall. Very tall. In fact, he is soooo tall that he is often clumsy. With the refrain of "Oh dear, Geoffrey!" sprinkled throughout - preschoolers will quickly chime in and chorus along with you.

The real strength of this title is the gorgeous artwork that fits beautifully in the over sized pages. The mixed media illustrations are colorful, emotive, and cheery. If you don't already own this title - give it strong consideration for your early childhood shelves!
