This book is wonderful!! My 2 1/2y daughter loves this book - we first got it at the library, read it every day for weeks, then, when we had to return it she was quite upset. We checked it out again a few months later. Now I am going to march into my bookstore and purchase it so she can have it for keeps! The storyline is great; any preschooler can certainly identify. I would definitely recommend it to other parents.
