Rollie Pollie Review

Rollie Pollie Review

by Kim Holley, illustrations by Kristen Hawkins


Ever imagine what else rollie pollies could do with all those arms and legs besides roll all around in your hand? Well, get ready to boogie, because here comes the Rollie Pollie Review!

My grandson Kaehl loved to play outside whenever he came to our country home. His favorite thing to do was explore the barn, woodpiles, or anywhere rollie pollies could be found. He would collect a bowl full of them and we would imagine them as cowboys, pirates, and other action adventurers by giving them names and play acting with them in all sorts of wild story lines. It was after one particular day of fun with rollie pollies, crickets, butterflies, ants, and just about every creepy crawly insect you can find in the county, that the idea of a rock and roll band made up of rollie pollies came to life, and the result was the Rollie Pollie Review!



Absolutely Adorable!!! By the time I got to the end of the book, I caught myself grinning and imagining all those things happening in my own yard. Such a creative and fun way to incorporate nature into learning! -D.G.

This is truly a fun happy time book for all ages. The way it rhymes all the way thru makes it a very easy visual read, you could close your eyes and see it all unfold in your mind. Those who bring such visual happy stories that rhyme in this way is very unique indeed. You and your family will enjoy it every time you read it, and trust me you will read it over and over! -L.O.
