My 5 year old daughter received this book as a gift and it quickly became a favorite for both of us. The illustrations are so beautiful we both loved looking at them and pointing out all of the things that began with a particular letter and searching for the hidden boy in every letter. It took us MANY readings to find the boy in all each of the letter pages, but I enjoyed searching for them as much as my daughter. Buy it! It is an excellent gift as well as lots of fun!
