I still remember this book from my childhood
This was the first book I ever read. I was seven and a fellow student at my small country school taught me to read using this book. I read it dozens of times, and I still remember it. Still have the copy I bought of it back then as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
