    I’m a big fan of silly rhymes in children’s books. Not only is it fun to read (aloud or to yourself), kids love it. Hawksley reminds me of Dr. Seuss in that he awakens the imagination in every reader and is a very talented artist. His illustrations are very colorful and the wording is easy for anyone to understand. In this one, his subject is hats and it’s a cute one. My favorite one has to be this joke – What kind of hats do penguins wear? Ice caps! Highly recommend! Ideal for ages 3 – 6. My Rat I’m a big fan of silly rhymes in children’s books.

    Cute, fun and informative, too. Wonderful choice of words in rhyme, just right for beginner readers. My grandchildren like the vocabulary words that connect to every day objects that they're familiar with. The book is very engaging for parents and children, ages 3-6. It's a simple story to understand with very cute illustrations. Our favorite line, "If you have some music - do a little dance." Cute, fun and informative, too.

    ‘A silly rhyming picture book’ I’m always on the lookout for good children’s books to add to my Kindle library. Some books don’t translate well to Kindle and that, in my experience, goes particularly for children’s books, but this one works perfectly. The simple, clearly defined illustrations are well suited to ebook format and even though I read it on my Kindle Paperwhite, therefore no colour, it still worked well ( and my little grandson agreed!) The little rhymes are indeed very silly. ‘If you h ‘A silly rhyming picture book’ I’m always on the lookout for good children’s books to add to my Kindle library.

    The illustrations in If You Have a Hat are fun for young children. The rhyme is good and the beat works. All of the examples of what do do with things a young child would have is age appropriate except one and that is the airplane. Unless the child lives in France, a preschool child does not have the experience to understand that France is a country far away. The concept of distance is restricted to the area where the child lives and they have nothing to relate to traveling so far to a foreign c The illustrations in If You Have a Hat are fun for young children. The rhyme is good and the beat works. All of the examples of what do do with things a young child would have is age appropriate except one and that is the airplane. Unless the child lives in France, a preschool child does not have the experience to understand that France is a country far away. The concept of distance is restricted to the area where the child lives and they have nothing to relate to traveling so far to a foreign country. The four-year-olds in my class are still dealing with understanding that they live in a state in a country with fifty states when they are just learning to count to ten. Maps are just lines on a drawing so that is not a way to teach a preschool age child about distances and other far away places. I don't think this makes the book inappropriate for preschool age children but the adults reading it should be ready to answer questions, if they come up from this one page. The rest of the book is excellent to talk about what we use things for and to expand vocabulary and have fun reading.

    If you have.... Not much to this book. It randomly says "if you have a _____ then ... It really just gives an example of what you could or should do with the item in question. A bandaid, a smile, a seed, brick. It doesn't really have any other theme or flow. If you have.... Not much to this book. It randomly says "if you have a _____ then ...

    A quick, fun read. Good illustrations and demonstration of what kids can do with certain objects. There was no narrative per se so no morals to be had or lessons to be learned here. Still, a toddler would enjoy the illustrations.

    This book is such a fun book that can easily make children laugh. It starts off with logical things like when you have a hat then put it on your head. It then the humor comes in onto the third page (each scenario takes up two pages) by saying if you find a bug then tuck him into a bed. The book isn't humorous but also adventurous, like using imagination. An example of this is when you have bricks build a tower. It then goes back and forth to humor adventure and then obvious, this makes the book This book is such a fun book that can easily make children laugh.

The book isn't humorous but also adventurous, like using imagination. An example of this is when you have bricks build a tower. It then goes back and forth to humor adventure and then obvious, this makes the book more exciting and allows for the reader to read the unexpected. The illustrations in this book are very simple, and I believe it is because the images are supposed to be very straight forward and identifiable to make it easy for younger children to understand. There are simple pictures of a single thing, like an animal, object, food, ect. on the left page and then what should be done with it on the right page. On the right page the picture is in a little box outlined in black and is an actual activity that relates to the corresponding left page. Each page uses bright colors making the book fun and exciting and keeping the reader engaged in the book. The illustrations are not very detailed, but a lot of effort can be seen in them and show that they were planned out because they are somewhat realistic looking and cartoonish. One thing I loved about this book is how simple the text is, but how fun and lively it was. Another thing is that the text can easily stand alone and will work without the pictures making it an easy book to be read aloud with or with out showing the pictures, because most of the fun is through what is read. I believe that this book can be read to oneself or be read aloud, which i think is a plus for the author because they did a great job at making it fun in both ways. The text does a great job at portraying the tone and the tone in this case is happy. Since the author wrote this from a happy point of view the mood relates with that as most of the people in the illustrations are smiling and look happy, this is when the illustrations may be wanted but I still believe that they are not completely needed and just add to the fun of the book.

    “If You Have a Hat” by Gerald Hawksley is a basic picture book that has a lot of rhyming text. The book has a page with a picture of an object and says “If you have...” and tells the name of the object, and then the next page tells the reader what to do with the object and has a picture describing what they should do with the object. The book doesn’t have a plot other than to show the objects and what to do with them.

The book doesn’t have a plot other than to show the objects and what to do with them. It is a silly little book but it has good information about what the children should do with objects that they might find in their house. The book has very little text, so it is a good beginning book for a child who is just learning how to read. There aren’t many big words that the child wouldn’t understand. The child would also get a good lesson about rhyming. The only time that I thought the text was peculiar was when it referred to as a band-aid as a “sticking plaster.” I have never heard it called a sticking plaster in all my life, but that might have been done to avoid legal issues, as “band-aid” is a particular brand of bandage. I’m just surprised that it wasn’t called a bandage. The book is a good opportunity for parents or teachers to teach their students about these day-to-day items and describe what they are used for. Some things are easier than others, like when the people in the illustrations are eating food. But there are others like putting on the bandage or taking a picture with a camera that a child might not yet be aware of. There are even somethings that are not likely to ever happen in the life of the child, like giving a hippo a bath. Some of the images are silly for the child’s amusement, and some can be used as a didactic experience.

    A simple book for toddlers. Some cute rhymes, and the extras (games and jokes) at the end of the book were fun for little ones.

    If you have a hat by Gerald Hawksley is a short simple children’s book. I am not sure I would call it a rhyming book, but it does have cute pictures to go with the simple text. This book is only 24 pages with usually only 5-6 words per page. Some of the cute sayings include: “If you have some music, do a little dance. If you have some cheese, give it to a mouse."

Whether your child uses memorization or actual reading skills for this book I believe it’s a nice, simple and colorfully illustrated children’s book. I definitely wasn’t disappointed with the price of $2.99 on Amazon.com. I would recommend this book for children 3-5 years old. And by the way…”If you have a hat, put it on your head!”

    I downloaded this for free when it was on sale through Amazon. I like to have a collection of kids books on my kindle that I can read to my daughter when we're traveling so that bedtime routine is as close to normal as possible. We picked this one to read and weren't impressed, if I'm being honest. The entire book is set up as one page is "If you have..." and the next page gives you an instruction of what to do with it. It also rhymes, which creates a couple awkward sentences. I just wasn't super I downloaded this for free when it was on sale through Amazon.

The illustrations also didn't do much for me. They were small and just not the style I prefer. While kids probably will like the images, they were also very small. I would have preferred larger images as well. Just overall disappointed with this book. I think it could have been better.

    When my 3 year old daughter asked for an ereader last Christmas, she received an Android tablet with Kindle for Android (as well as other ebook applications). It seems that only recently have illustrated, color children’s books began to come to the Kindle. So I was elated to find an indie illustrated, color children’s book! The cute, colorful pictures are great even for children that can’t yet read – they can guess the rhyme from the picture, as well as try to find the bird in each picture.

This book also has much better formatting than any other illustrated children’s Kindle book I have seen. If you have young kids, buy this book now!

    E-Book/Kindle Picturebook ages: 2-5 This book was made just for Kindle. The author made this book just for beginning readers who are learning words and how they are used. The silly plot of this story and picture make it fun and interesting to children and the adults who read to them. I thought that making this book just for Kindle was a great eco-friendly way publish books. This book didint win any adwards but the author did for previous work.
