    I generally like books where the narrator's vocal inflection adds to the understanding of the plot But the tiny flaps scare me as a public librarian


  2. Nancy Kotkin Nancy Kotkin says:

    A realistic cumulative story about the perils and rewards of public speaking The repetition accurately mimics the voice of an anxious child and increases the fun of the story While the flaps add interactivity they are not very sturdy and probably won't last long


  3. Shelley Shelley says:

    Many reviewers praised the interactive flaps As a children's librarian all I could think about was Oh no flaps Not even sturdy flaps This book won't last long

    From the author of Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day comes a new book all about overcoming stage fright A boy is performing in a talent show and knows that he is ready to sing his song because he’s been practicing and practicing it Plus he also has on his lucky blue books and his pants with lots of pockets He is very confident until the other five children start performing their acts Then his mood changes even though he still says that is he fine The story uses repetition that mirrors the child’s internal dialogue about his lucky pants the pockets and how much he has practiced adding another line about each child’s performance and it all leading up to his When his turn finally comes he is almost unable to stand up much alone sing and two boys boo him from the crowd But in a final burst of determination the boy stands and his brain starts to make sense again and he sings And two boys booed but the rest of the children cheeredViorst takes a universal fear of both children and adults and turns it into a very engaging picture book I love the modern setting of the book paired with the timeless use of a story that repeats again and again building through the story It matches the nerves that the boy is feeling and creates a wonderful tension as each new person gets up to perform Adding in the booing children is brilliant because that is what most of us fear the negative reaction of the crowd But in the book that happens the boy faces it and continues his performance Blackall’s illustrations clearly show the boy’s emotions even as he bravely continues to repeat to himself that it is all OK He looks directly at the reader conveying his surprise at feeling nervous and pulling his striped shirt higher and higher in an attempt to hide Blackall has incorporated a lift the flap component into her illustrations allowing us to peek into the boy’s pocket and at the end of the book the effect is used to propel the entire story forward in a creative wayA smart and very human picture book about performance nervousness and overcoming it all This would be a perfect book to share with children about to do a show Appropriate for ages 5 7

    The morning of the talent show one little boy isn't nervous at all until it gets closer and closer to his turn Suddenly his words come out all wrong and worst of all two boys boo In the end he perseveres sings his song and finishes to a round of applause Not only does this read aloud offer an accessible lesson about overcoming fears it features building repetition and interactive lift the flap elements throughout that will keep listeners engaged


  6. Margie Margie says:

    Each person truly has a remarkable uniue story to share Talent show jitters can be particularly troublesome especially when you know deep down inside you are good Author Judith Viorst and illustrator Sophie Blackall have given readers an encouraging amusing and oh so true look in And Two Boys Booed Margaret Ferguson Books Farrar Straus Giroux at experiencing and overcoming stage fright My full recommendation


  7. Michele Knott Michele Knott says:

    Overall I thought this story was ok It kept bothering me that kids were booing and there weren't conseuences Although really that's not what this book was about It's about being brave it's about rising above not only your nerves but against criticism I liked the interactive flaps Some served a purpose that added to the story


  8. Mary Mary says:

    A young boy is nervous about being last in the talent show and then when he gets up and sits down two boys boo Viorst and Blackall's picture book collaboration captures the emotional tension of the mild stage fright and the happy pride in the final applause I wish there had been some conseuences for the rude audience behavior but the cumulative repetitive text and flaps add to the gentle fun


  9. Amy Amy says:

    Great book about performance anxiety A boy has practiced his song a billion times but when he has to sing in a talent show he freezes up and can't sing A lift the flap book that is fun and deals with a real life situation that all kids face


  10. Edward Sullivan Edward Sullivan says:

    A relatable story about a young boy's performance anxiety Good illustrations with interactive flaps by Sophie Blackall but the text gets a bit tedious
