SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Here Comes Ingo

Chances are very good that you have never seen a children’s book quite like “Here Comes Ingo.” There are several reasons for this, not the least of which is the fact that the book contains no words. Add to that the stunning, hand-crafted artwork which has an almost dreamlike quality to it and you have a book that doesn’t really fit into any traditional book category, and that’s not a bad thing, at all! Clearly, this is a very original children’s picture book. It challenges young children to create their own perception of what is happening in the story. Each telling of the story can be a little different as you start to notice different things in the book with each reading. The artwork on several of the pages is very abstract and surreal, this may not appeal to all parents. But the vibrant images are sure to challenge most kid’s imaginations. The quality of the book’s construction is terrific, and as we have noted here, it certainly stands out in the sea of children’s books. Testers appreciated that fact that the author has included a note at the end of the book, encouraging children to figure out what the characters are thinking, feeling, and doing. This is a helpful guide for parents who might not be sure about what to make of this when they first see it. Of course, children see things differently from parents and this book seems to have been created to appeal to the part of children’s brains that are still open to magic and not controlled so much by reason. Beyond being a children’s picture book, it could absolutely be seen as a work of art.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
