Book Review: The Brothers Foot by Author Steve Cormey
Author House Publishing
Synopsis: A comical story based on a song about three brothers with rather strange names who have a knack for fun with song and dance moves. The story tells of the playful antics of three rabbits and how they use singing to get out of a scary predicament in their brier patch. Danger may lurk but with singing and music, the scary turns into fun in a silly way.
Author Steve Cormey is a song writer turned children's writer who has combined his talents to bring a charming story to life for children. Illustrated by Ronda Eden, the three rabbits become heartwarming characters that kids will love.
I liked this book and I think kids will too. It is quirky but the additional music CD and DVD that are available make this a great educational tool that entertains. The easy to read text makes it a good book for those young independent readers and the CD has the added benefit of keeping kids interested in the song. This is a great gift idea and a fun way to share a book with your child that can be read over and over.
