Picture Book Review: That’s Good, That’s Bad

That's Good, That's Bad by Joan M. Lexau
That’s Good, That’s Bad
by Joan M. Lexau,  Aliki (Illustrations)

5 out of 5 stars

A young boy is confronted with a ferocious tiger, but buys time by telling the tiger a story about how he escaped from an angry rhino. During the ups and downs of the boy’s story, the tiger is alternately glad or sad as the boy gets in and out of trouble.

The boy runs away from rhino, but rhino can run faster. That’s bad.
The boy climbs into a tree to escape. That’s good.
The boy throws a stone at the rhino. That’s good.
But the stone doesn’t hit rhino. That’s bad.

The illustrations are so cute!

The tiger’s facial expressions and emotional ups and downs are really funny, as he becomes more and more involved in the boy’s story. The art style is simple, but full of energy and bright colors.

I just love this sweet old story, and I can’t wait to share it with the next generation of children in my family!
