Wee Reads: Harvey's Hideout by Russell Hoban

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps. 

Harvey's HideoutHarvey's Hideout by Russell Hoban


Harvey thinks his big sister is mean and rotten; she thinks he is stupid and no-good. As a result, they both spend some lonely hours refusing to play with each other.

Do you like this book?
Yeah! I want a sister! 

What's your favorite part of the book?
I like when they were sticking their tongues out at each other. And then when he was hiding at his secret hideout!

What do you think of the cover?
He's so cute! What is he though?

Do you want me to read it again?

Harvey's Hideout is a great book about siblings. Through out the book the brother and sister are very mean to each other, calling each other names and just all around being rude. 

Well they each decide to do their own thing, and realize how lonely and boring it is. And so they decide that even though they are mean, it's better to be with your sibling than alone.

Harvey's Hideout also has some adorable illustrations that look like they were drawn with crayon. I think that's perfect for the book.

We received an ARC of this book to review, and that does not change my opinion on the book.
