Herbert Loves Sherbert

Herbert Loves Sherbert

By Joanie Leopold

Herbert Clark’s favorite food is sherbet, in all its glorious, Technicolor flavors. When his grandmother comes to babysit for a week, Herb is pretty sure he can trick her into feeding him sherbet for every meal. Is Grandma on to Herbert’s game? Will Herbert learn that having your wishes come true isn’t always what you had hoped? Follow Herbert’s sherbet odyssey in rhyme on every brightly illustrated page.

We Give It…

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book is phenomenal! Witty, whimsical rhymes pared with gorgeous illustrations by Jim Steck. Vivid colors throughout the book will keep any child’s attention. A tale we all know too well. A child trying to get one over on an adult. A young boy who wants to eat nothing but sherbert, alone with an unsuspecting grandma, or is he? We loved every moment of this book, which can be accompanied by the most adorable plush doll of Herbert. Having Herbert in my little boys hand as we read the book helped him connect even better to the character. This book has definitely made me a huge fan! Bravo Joanie! Will Herbert get over on Grandma?
