This is a cute set of questions that will reliably induce giggles (and hopefully start good conversations) for young kids. Some of the question sets rhyme, and some contain mildly rude humor that will delight small kids. The illustrations are bright and vivid. This would make for a great book for home or classroom and would be a good early read for newly independent readers. Silly, fun reading practice will be a great incentive for reluctant readers!

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

As a parent, I love books like this on a long car ride or even making conversation over dinner. As a teacher, I love books like this as ice breakers. This is a particularly cute Would You Rather with fun pictures and rhyming alternatives.

I love doing would you rather questions with students. This book is a lot of fun. It will make for a great read aloud. I wish there was an opening and closing to make it more of a story.

Would You Rather by James Layton and Kat Fox has some cute parts and fun artwork. Some of the artwork does not seem appropriate for younger children. There are many choices that are fun and the artwork goes perfectly with the scenario. There isn't really a beginning or ending to this book. I found myself going back to see if I missed page one, same with the end of the book.
There are parts of that book that would cause a lot of giggling, though! I think that some of the scenarios could be great conversation starters, as well.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Would you rather? By James Layton and Kat Fox.
Would you rather have a hose for a nose...or 26 toes? This hilarious book presents readers with side-splitting scenarios that make them choose between monster moms and dinosaur dads, crying your eyes out or laughing your head off, and ants in your pants or poo on your shoe. Comical artwork perfectly illustrates these outrageous scenarios, which will keep readers turning the pages and asking for more! A kid-friendly introduction to critical thinking and humor, this book is sure to charm even the most reluctant reader.
A lovely little read for any young ones. Great pictures. 5*.

Would you rather slip on a cake or stand on a rake? I personally would rather have poo on my shoe than ants in my pants. Each to their own though.

People have been playing 'would you rather' since the dawn of time. Seriously, though, cavemen probably cackled out loud deciding whether they'd rather wear a full bear suit or go hunting completely naked.

There's good reason for its popularity. It's hilarious! This book completely does the concept proud. Through hilarious scenarios and fantastically funny illustrations, Would You Rather is an entertaining book for children and adults alike. The pictures are great for engaging toddlers and older children would thoroughly enjoy learning to read through the humorous text.

I would definitely buy this book for my toddler and we'd have a lot of fun reading it together. It's entertaining, cheeky and very silly ‒ in the best kind of way.

Layton and Fox team up to give an interactive would you rather journey for readers. Having an almost 5 year old, some of the pictures may not be suited for him based on my opinion, but slightly older children will love it. I love the style of the book which would lead to great conversations.

This interactive book will activate imaginations and get kids giggling and laughing. The game of "Would You Rather?" is on...

This book is hilarious and very entertaining! Each turn of the page offers another fun idea portraying outrageous scenarios that kids (and adults) will love. The illustrations are big, bold, and very kid-friendly. Young readers will delight in the happy vibe that is projected throughout the entire book from beginning to end. It makes an excellent read aloud at story time. Reluctant readers will be dive in and gladly give it a go.

The book is a wonderful intro to critical thinking, problem solving and using your imagination. I highly recommend this book.

I loved the concept of this book and the questions kept my own children debating and giggling for hours. I might use some pages with my students, but probably not the book in it's entirety because of the appropriateness of some questions (after which 3rd graders might not be able to function the rest of the day). I want to clarify that I did read this with my children in a home setting but I would pick and choose the questions/pages to share with my students. Overall, it was a fun book that will definitely keep kids talking.

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The art style were exaggerated and funny, bright and colourful, I can see it will appeal to young readers. The choices in the book were funny, my 6 years old said her favourite would you rather was a baboon for a brother or a skunk for a sister.

I requested a copy of this book to ask the questions to my 5th-grade students. Before each lesson, we do brain breaks to get them refocused and ready. The questions were all silly, yet age-appropriate. The illustrations were also great. I plan on getting a copy for my own classroom.
