Cockatoo, Too by Bethanie Deeney Murguia

Published by Bonnier Publishing Group


Summary:  Basically, toucans can can-can, and cockatoos in tutus, can too.  The word play never stops in this brief story, starting with a cockatoo, moving to two, then bringing in the tutus and can-canning toucans.  Too.  Paired with the fun illustrations, this is sure to bring giggles from young audiences.   40 pages; ages 2-7.

Pros:  You, too, can can-can like a toucan.

Cons:  The distinction between “Cockatoo two?” and “Cockatoo, too?” may be lost on a very young reader.  A reader who is, maybe…two?

  1. Hi Janet,

    Your site is very helpful for a single dad, so thank you. I know it’s a new book, but I just found a very nice book called “Cooking With Mr. C. by John Contratti. It has a wonderful message for kids. I found it on Amazon. My boys love it. I check out your site weekly, so thanks.
