Blue Baboon Finds Her Tune

We rated this book:


Blue Baboon Finds Her Tune is a story about Blue Baboon, a girl who lives in a city under an orange moon. Blue Baboon sees a bassoon (this is an instrument that is very tall and skinny) and wants to play it with the other animals around her who are playing other instruments (like a flute, a clarinet, and a saxophone). Blue Baboon can’t play it very well, but then a big monsoon hits! Lucky for Blue Baboon, she finds a balloon to fly in to get away and find a new friend.

I liked Blue Baboon Finds Her Tune because even though there aren’t very many words in the book, it still tells a whole story. The words were easy for me to read, but I still learned some new ones (bassoon, dune, croon) and I like how they all rhymed, which made it easy to guess and sound out the words that I didn’t already know. The story seemed like it might end up sad, but it’s not. It has a happy ending for everyone! Young kids will like this book, but I think bigger kids might find it boring due to the few words on the pages.
