Book review: Bamboo for Me, Bamboo for You!, by Fran Manushkin, illustrated by Purificacion Hernandez

Manushkin, Fran.  Bamboo for Me, Bamboo for You!  Illustrated by Purificacion Hernandez.  Aladdin, 2017.  ISBN 978-1-4814-5063-8. $17.99. 32 pages. Ages 4-8.  P6 Q6

A digitally illustrated book about two panda sisters named Amanda and Miranda.  This book has lots of rhyming, sibling fun, and sibling fighting.  The book highlights the uses of bamboo–it’s not just for eating–and is set in a zoo, so the siblings can see what some of the other animals eat.

Verdict:  An early learner rhyming book with some opportunity for conversation regarding what other animals eat and their lives in a zoo.
