Another flip book that tells what Aunts Do best and What Uncles Do best. I purchased the book What Grandma/Grandpas Do Best by this author at the same time and while these are cute books, they are identical when flipped. The pictures are different, but the story is the same. I feel like they would be much better and much more special if what aunts did and what uncles did was unique to each. It seems like this was the easy way of writing this book without much time or effort. Check it out!
From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2–In this jolly follow-up to What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best (1998) and What Grandmas Do Best/What Grandpas Do Best (2000, both S & S), Numeroff and Munsinger show how these relatives enjoy time with nieces and nephews. The critters, including sheep, cats, and squirrels, take roller-coaster rides and stay up for late-night television. An aunt plays a piano with her nephew while another takes her niece for a ride in her yellow convertible. Readers can then turn the book over to see how uncles enjoy their young relatives, such as sitting on the floor for toy piano tunes or driving all-terrain in a messy jeep. The ink-and-watercolor cartoons are endearing. Stereotypes are dashed since both sexes cook, shoe shop at the mall, and build clubhouses. The characters’ expressions and poses alternate from comic to affectionate. As expected–and hoped for–the title reiterates that uncles and aunts “can give you lots and lots of love.” This upbeat offering just might inspire a family reunion.–Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

What Aunts Do Best/What Uncles Do Best Hardcover – June 1, 2004 by Laura Numeroff (Author), Review
The quality of the book is excellent. It’s make very well and the graphics are of a great quality. I really wish they would have made the two parts (aunt/uncle) into different stories more specific to aunts and uncles but it still works for what we were looking for. -Read Reviews-
