Cayden's comments:

I like the title of the book, "Hey…Hey...Think Out Loud!"  It is a funny title.  In the book there is a boy and he talks to different things and sometimes they talk back to him.  He asks the flower when it is going to grow and it asks him the same thing back.  He also asks a dog why he wags his tail and asks a cloud why it is so fluffy.  He always starts by saying the words "Hey, hey" and everything that he says rhymes.  I really like things that rhyme.


My favorite picture in the book is the one with the standup bass and the drum set because they have faces and because we have a drum set too except it is a little bit different.  I also like the sun picture because it is smiling and the cloud picture because it looks like cotton candy.  

I like that the book is written by a boy who is seven-years-old.  That is only two years older than I am.  Maybe I can write a book someday too!  This book was a fun book to read!

Parent's comments: 


We enjoyed the creativity expressed in the "Hey…Hey...Think Out Loud!" by Jared Tinlin.  The rhyming text was very catchy and fun.  After reading the book my son created rhyming verses of his own beginning with the words "Hey, hey."  It is always great to see books authored by children.  They prove to be very inspirational to other young, ambitious children like my son.
