    “Glitter, glitter everywhere!” Now I am not a sparkly person. Black is the dominant color in my wardrobe. But this book! Haha…This book made this dark hearted reader smile and shine. Too boring, dull or quiet? Just add glitter! To anything or anyone or any place. Come follow along as our young heroine and her cat decorate her world with glitter. “Try a speck, a fleck, a sprinkle.

You’ll feel it. I mean really feel it! You can run your fingers over the pages and feel the glitter. :D A beautiful read that just might show readers that we shine every day in our own way with or without glitter. Highly recommended.

    One of my biggest regrets in life is giving glitter to a 10-year-old then walking away. This book forces me to relive that nightmare. An unexplained box with GOOGLY EYES shows up on the last page and if the sequel is JUST ADD GOOGLY EYES it will become my BIBLE.

Is there such a thing as too much glitter though...? Pairing an entertaining read-aloud text from author Angela DiTerlizzi with immensely appealing multimedia artwork - featuring lots of glitter, or course - from illustrator Samantha Cotterill, Just Add Glitter is the perfect picture-book for young children who love (you guessed it) a bit of sparkle. I found the scene in which the young heroine and her cat are all but buried in piles of glitter particularly droll, and appreciated the ending, in which a new box waits on the doorstep. Recommended to children who love sparkly, glittery things.

    As a glitter aficionado I concede that I may have been subtly influenced (if you can call glitter subtle) in my admission that this is a glorious book. Mainly for the illustrations and the textured illusion of glitter (without the horrible consequence of loose glitter everywhere like you get with some greeting cards). Plus it rhymes, there's a cat (even though it's not black), and a subtle hint of a possible follow up book about googly eyes(?).

    First of all, I'm not a fan of glitter, so this is probably just not for me, but I felt the need to review it because I loved the illustrations so much. I really like how Cotterill's illustrations are in a 3D world. It reminds me of the beautiful, soulful book The Visitor by Antje Damm, where I first saw this style used. Then of course there's the glitter... Not my favorite in terms of text, nothing to complain about there, but the illustrations bring this book to life.

    Glitter is my favorite color and I was totally THRILLED to see this book to say the least. Such cute illustrations and I love how each page has some sparkle to it. This is definitely a book for any kid who can't get enough of glitter in their lives!

    This is an awesome book with beautiful cut-outs and glitter on the pages. Loved this. (Glitter, not so much!)

    Just the title alone gives away what to do when your bored, ignored or feeling down. A jaunty tale of rhyme, and how to bring the bling. But could there be such a thing as too much bling? This book sparkles from cover to cover.

    Just Add Glitter is a children's picture book written by Angela Diterlizzi (even her surname sounds glittery) and illustrated by Samantha Cotterill.

It captured the childish exuberance, joie de vivre, and the je ne sais quoi of childish innocence and their eternal love for glitter in rhyme. Cotterill's illustrations are phenomenally depicted, colorful, and most importantly – glittery. The premise of the book is rather straightforward. It is about a girl and her cat and how they love glitter and believe in the power of glitter could brighten anyone’s day or any ordinary thing. Before long, there is glitter everywhere and the girl and her cat question if there is such thing as too much glitter – or does it? All in all, Just Add Glitter is a wonderful children's book that is silly and sweet in equal measures and celebrates imagination, creativity, and knowing limits – maybe.

    The idea is interesting, do a craft project by adding glitter. Of course it gets out of hand. The moral is that if you have too much of a good thing you can not see the real things that sparkle. The child does clean up in the end, which is a nice touch. The illustrations save the book. As the publisher said they are made by making "hand drawn paper cutout that are then digitally colored, set in a 3-D environment wit the worlds supply of glitter before being photographed."

Also the fact that there are a few hidden surprises throughout the book is fun (look at the beginning and end when special packages are dropped off at the front door). The fact that there is glitter actually in the book could cause a few issues (as anyone knows who works with glitter, eventually you will be covered, too!)

    I love the exuberance and creativity that burst from these pages. As a mom I must admit my relationship with glitter and therefore feelings about this book are a bit mixed, but this book is so much fun. The rhyming text is brief and lively. The idea is so fun and captures childhood perfectly. The illustrations are my favorite part. I'm fascinated by the 3-D diorama process Samantha Cotterill used to create the pictures.

    2.5/okay. I did love the page with all of the colors and glitter on it— so I imagine a young reader would delight in that page too. I cant help but wonder how this book gets printed?? The story was just ok and delivery was alright, it felt like it rested on the glitter trick so either you are sold by the fact that there are glittery pages or not.

    The postal carrier drops off a package to start this story. The girl and her cat discover it's full of glitter. They add it to everything - starting with a little bit and then more and more. Eventually, they realize that all that glitter hides the most important sparklers - themselves. Cute ending as another package appears on the doorstep - this one with googly eyes. Actual glitter makes the pages sparkle and give some texture for tactile learners.

    The text is pretty bland, but my four-year-old loved the illustrations -- especially running her fingers over the texture of the glitter. I liked that the book sent the message that too much glitter can be a bad thing. I'm not sure if it will get though to the intended audience, but at least the author tried to temper the glitter mania that ravages clothing, carpets, etc.

    This is a super cute book. Not a lot of words, but a lot of color!! It is a rhyming book, so it is very fun to read aloud, especially to children who enjoy a lot of bling! Another cute aspect is that all the glitter has texture so the child can touch and feel it on every page! I highly recommend this book!

    I feel like this book may have been funded by a glitter-producing company. I would love this book if I didn't have a love/fear relationship with glitter. It can be harmful to the user's health and get into the water. Also, and perhaps most importantly, you can never clean it up. If I completely separate the message from the illustrations...I love them!

    This book describes me so well! A must read for all glitter fans! The story has several scenarios where the main character and her cat add glitter to make themselves happy and their surroundings pretty. This book would make a better read aloud because of the REAL GLITTER on some of the pages you HAVE to touch.

    This book will make a convert of any glitter Grinch!It will put a smile on your face as you cheerfully read each rhyming line. But...look out...I see some googly eyes at the end of the book! Fun story hour read to boost little imaginations. Love the 3-d look of the pictures.

    As someone who loves glitter, I loved this book! There is glitter on the pages, and it has a wonderful texture. The story rhymes and would be very great for a glittery preschool storytime. It also demonstrates how there can be too much of a good thing.

    Not the biggest fan of glitter, but I love this!! Its so bright, and sparkly, and easy to read. As I read it, I imagined myself in storytime throwing streamers or scarves - anything to give the kiddos the same thrill as the little girl in the book.

    Another bad-influence uncle gift for the niecelings. Maybe even for older niece to read to younger niece. Probably should drop shift a box of glitter and googly eyes...but want to be invited to Thanksgiving and other holidays.

    This picture book is adorable. The illustrations combine drawings, bright color, cut paper and photographs. The ending is very cute, too.

    I liked the texture of the glitter. We couldn't keep our hands off the pages.
