Rated for infants on up?!?!

I downloaded this last night to read to my two year old. It was maybe 5 pages of actual story and there's not a single picture in it at all. I don't know what infant, toddler, or even preschooler is going to want to sit and listen to you read and have nothing to look at...

    Stubborn Cricket Learns a Lesson(the hard way)!

    Sweet little tale. My kids got the hidden message about what can happen when you ignore good advice from others.

    Origin Tale

    If you like stories about why things are the way they are, then this is a good one. It's not a long read, and gets where it's going.
