    Hazel and Wally Nut, whose adventures began in author Eric Litwin and illustrator Scott Magoon's The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nut House , and then continued in The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka-Dot Pants , return for their third sing-song adventure here. Wanting to be big, the two nuts begin to roll, picking up mud along the way and growing ever larger, until the rain reduces them to their original size. Fortunately though, they have what they really need, in their loving family... Althoug Hazel and Wally Nut, whose adventures began in author Eric Litwin and illustrator Scott Magoon's The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nut House , and then continued in The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka-Dot Pants , return for their third sing-song adventure here. Wanting to be big, the two nuts begin to roll, picking up mud along the way and growing ever larger, until the rain reduces them to their original size. Fortunately though, they have what they really need, in their loving family... Although The Nuts: Keep Rolling! is the third in this picture-book series, and although I usually like to read the books in a series in order, I ended up starting with this one, picking it up without realizing initially that it was part of a longer series. Litwin is the author of the first four Pete the Cat books, as well as the Groovy Joe series, so I recognized his name. It's possible that this one would work better in conjunction with the song and dance, which can be downloaded, but overall I didn't have a positive impression. The artwork was cute - as could be expected of Magoon - but the text was unimpressive. Mileage varies, of course, so if you have a young child who enjoyed other Litwin ventures, perhaps you should give this one a try.

    Cute storytime book! Again, in the tradition of Pete the Cat. Bright, colorful pictures.

    Hazel and Wally are nuts who are sick of being small. So they roll down a muddy hill, getting bigger and muddier as they go. Simple words to describe size (big, small, tall, etc.) are introduced and repeated. There's an easy refrain to sing: "Keep rolling. Keep rolling. Keep rolling." As our nutty heroes get bigger, their size is compared to the sizes of cats, dogs, and elephants. The suggestive placement of branches and leaves and twigs cause a dog to chase them thinking they are "cats," a dog-c Hazel and Wally are nuts who are sick of being small.

The suggestive placement of branches and leaves and twigs cause a dog to chase them thinking they are "cats," a dog-catcher then mistakes them for "dogs," and finally a zoo-keeper comes after them as "elephants." Litwin is a master storyteller, and he hits nearly every item on my wishlist: repetition, rhyme, appropriate academic elements (size attributes/comparisons), humor, and a multi-sensory approach (singing, rolling). I interviewed Eric Litwin last December and he told me that this book marked a return to the positivity message he established with Pete the Cat, calling that his "favorite subgenre." For whatever reason (I think because they are nuts), Wally and Hazel are not as beloved as Pete the Cat and Groovy Joe are with my kids, so this book isn't requested as often. But overall The Nuts: Keep Rolling! is yet another great offering for Litwin fans.

    This book has that musical and lyrical quality that kids really enjoy. I'm sure that parents will be sick of singing "Keep Rolling" after they have to read this for the 17th time but I think this will be favorite read aloud for little ones. The illustrations are charming too. This book has that musical and lyrical quality that kids really enjoy.

    Another book from the author of the original Pete the Cat books, and it looks like he is creating a new series about nuts. This one has a simple song, perhaps a bit too simple. Overall, I prefer Pete the Cat and Groovy Joe.

    The "song" didn't do a whole lot for me. But at least the illustrations were cute, and the story was a silly one that kids will like. Except that the author tried to shoehorn a lesson in at the very end that didn't really fit with the rest of the book. The "song" didn't do a whole lot for me.

    This story is kind of weird- why would acorns roll themselves in mud to grow in size? Don't know. The message is good though: Keep rolling! "And that family was happy, even though they were small. Because when you have each other, then you have it all." This story is kind of weird- why would acorns roll themselves in mud to grow in size?

    Another win for Eric Litwin. Hazel and Wally Nut want to be bigger, so they start rolling and picking up mud that changes their size. When they get bigger, they appear to be cats, then dogs, and then elephants, which brings about its own challenges. Great for PreK or Toddler Story Class.

    *** This review is for the Vox (talking books) edition** A great choice for storytimes, my grandchildren loved this book! The illustrations are bright and colorful. The song refrain used throughout is a catchy tune and the narrator does a terrific job.

    Another "nutty" book with a fun message. Focus group arriving in a few days and I'll see what they think of it ;-) Usually can't go wrong with stories about mud with small boys.

    I love how this book is about family, sizes and animals. A catchy refrain can be sung-this seems to be the best "Nuts" book yet. The illustrations are whimsical.

    Another fun book in the series. Young readers will like singing along to this one, as well. Be sure to listen to Eric Litwin and friends read and sing this story on his website.

    Fun ode to kids who want to grow too fast. Lots of repetition so kids can get involved in the story if read aloud.

    The same characters as the first book but no nut puns and not quite as sweet. Still cute surprises make it a delight.

    “... when you have each other, then you have it all.” Hazel and Wally are really small and they want to be big and tall. So what do they do?
