Board Book Review: Wild Week

Wild Week by Teresa Porcella

4 out of 5 stars

Each of the animals are doing something different each day. “On Monday, the hen lays an egg… On Tuesday, the shark cuddles a pillow in the living room.” The koala likes to draw, the panda wears a scarf to stay warm, a bird builds a nest, and the skunk combs his hair. They all wait for Sunday when they can play together all day long!

The best thing about this book are the flaps that open up to reveal the animals doing their activities around the house. It’s so much fun to open the flaps and peek into the wild house where these animals are living.

I like the illustrations okay, but I feel like the animals’ eyeballs are staring at me. Their eyes are just so big and bulging. It weirds me out. I do like the colors and the general art style though. I like the design of each scene and some of them are funny and clever, like having a shark chilling on a chair in the living room. How does a shark SIT in a chair? It’s silly and hilarious!
I like the text and the cute little comments after each activity is described. The shark is cuddling his pillow, and the comment says “So comfy!” After the skunk combs his hair, the comment says, “Very fancy!” I love those little asides in the text. Adorable!
