In size, illustration and presentation, Who Will Play with Me? reminds me of the many Dr. Suess books my children loved as preschoolers. It’s just the right length for a read aloud book for this age group, and the winsome characters (Slug and Bug) will inspire interest and amusement.
Not overtly Christian, the story encourages children to be kind and put others first. It also points how our diversity as individuals helps us to accomplish more together. All of our traits are worthy and useful in different situations. The book ends with a quote from Philippians 2:3:
“In humility, value others above yourselves.”
The author, Randall Goodgame is the well-known creator of Slugs and Bugs music and you can visit SlugsandBugs.com to find more of his products.
VERDICT: Overall, this looks like a fun, cute book for young children. My only criticism is the rhyming dialog seemed a bit forced, and lacked bounce. I give it a 4.
