    What a strange, quirky little book Mr Zidderdeedee reminded me a bit of the Doozers from Fraggle Rock tiny, mostly green, and hard at work The story is a bit strange, though, and straddles the line between fanciful and explanatory I would have preferred if it had been a bitone way or the other either a quirky, fanciful story about a tiny little man, or an explanation of how plants get water Note I received a digital galley of this book through NetGalley.

    Another children s book that s told in rhyme That seems to work a treat every time The story is great, very appealing About life under the tree, its really revealing Children will love this tale, it s true And so will parents, grandparents and you If you d like to encourage children to think Just how each tree gets to take a drink

    This is a cute rhyming book about a tiny man, Mr Zidderdeedee, who waters tree roots in the rain I like the illustrations.I m a little conflicted with the story It is quite obvious a fantasy book, but I m not sure I care for Mr Zidderdeedee to water roots with a hose The book does a pretty good job of explaining why water is important, but I don t like the combination of incorrect information and fantasy.I received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC For once, my kiddos liked onethan me The whole time I was reading it to them, I kept asking myself, What s the point The kids liked the rhyming, they always do However, I couldn t understand the purpose of a man who lives in the ground who makes sure trees get water, I thought it was dumb.

    Definitely one for younger readers, this quirky little book was thoroughly enjoyed by my five year old, even though I found it a little underwhelming The surreal comparisons of Mr Zidderdeedee with belly button fluff and marshmallows the tiny kind were a big hit and the image of him watering the tree roots really captured her imagination I can see the if you believe line at the end creating a generation of children who are convinced that there are little people watering tree roots all o Definitely one for younger readers, this quirky little book was thoroughly enjoyed by my five year old, even though I found it a little underwhelming The surreal comparisons of Mr Zidderdeedee with belly button fluff and marshmallows the tiny kind were a big hit and the image of him watering the tree roots really captured her imagination I can see the if you believe line at the end creating a generation of children who are convinced that there are little people watering tree roots all over the world I found both the writing and artwork a bit hit and miss for example, some of the lines have an adept command of rhythm and rhyme, while others seem strained Similarly, the illustrations of the children seem lacking in character and expression, whereas the pictures of Mr Zidderdeedee going about his duties under the tree are charmingly simple and have a great use of colour and composition Despite these criticism, this book is worth a look if you have a younger child I could see it becoming a favourite for many children who are captivated by the idea of Mr Zidderdeedee and his very important job

    I liked this one better than her first two books It s clearly targeted at quite young children fewer words, and there is a rhyming scheme to facilitate reading aloud, although the meter is clunky onthan a few of the pages, which could make you stumble in your recitation.Most of the story is about a tiny man, Mr Zidderdeedee, who lives beneath a big tree and makes sure the roots get watered when it rains I m unclear why it s necessary to poke a funnel up through the grass to collect the I liked this one better than her first two books It s clearly targeted at quite young children fewer words, and there is a rhyming scheme to facilitate reading aloud, although the meter is clunky onthan a few of the pages, which could make you stumble in your recitation.Most of the story is about a tiny man, Mr Zidderdeedee, who lives beneath a big tree and makes sure the roots get watered when it rains I m unclear why it s necessary to poke a funnel up through the grass to collect the water and run it via a garden hose to the roots instead of just letting the rain soak down, but I guess if you can accept the idea of a tiny man living under a tree, then perhaps the ecological inaccuracies wouldn t bother you anyway I think Ms Page was aiming for whimsy however, in the end it just wasn t my cup of tea.I received a free PDF copy of this title from the publicist in exchange for my review

    This silly little rhyming tale is exactly that a silly little rhyming tale Don t try to get too muchout of it Two thirds of the story is a description of Mr Zidderdeedee, how tiny he is how he lives underground he s a hard guy to see You feel like you re almost to the end before you find out he s there to collect water and make sure the trees and roots of plants have enough to drink Little ones will love the rhymes and giggle at his name Mr Zidderdeedee The illustrations show This silly little rhyming tale is exactly that a silly little rhyming tale Don t try to get too muchout of it Two thirds of the story is a description of Mr Zidderdeedee, how tiny he is how he lives underground he s a hard guy to see You feel like you re almost to the end before you find out he s there to collect water and make sure the trees and roots of plants have enough to drink Little ones will love the rhymes and giggle at his name Mr Zidderdeedee The illustrations show what goes on above ground while Mr Zidderdeedee is at work below and how we don t even know he is there Little children will like this book because the rhyming makes it fun and they can see the little man

    Mr Zidderdeedee by Diane Page author and Bruce Bigelow author and illustrator is a fun, charming book for young readers about a little man who lives underground and waters tree roots.I love rhyming books, especially when they are wonderfully illustrated Mr Zidderdeedee excels on both accounts.The story premise may seem a bit silly, and it is, but that is one of the plusses of the book for me this could be a great jumping off point for parents to discuss with even young children about the Mr Zidderdeedee by Diane Page author and Bruce Bigelow author and illustrator is a fun, charming book for young readers about a little man who lives underground and waters tree roots.I love rhyming books, especially when they are wonderfully illustrated Mr Zidderdeedee excels on both accounts.The story premise may seem a bit silly, and it is, but that is one of the plusses of the book for me this could be a great jumping off point for parents to discuss with even young children about the basics of soil irrigation and such.Plus I just kind of like the idea that a little man lives underground taking care of trees, especially one with such a fun name.Highly recommended
