    Awesome Book for All Readers

    I read this book for the first time with my mom when I was 2. Ever since then it has been my favorite book. I remember taking it to high school for 'favorite book day'. The other kids would laugh, but then they would read it and think it was so cool! All kids should have this book, for the positive message, and the illustrations.

    My 3 year old daughter asks me to read this book several times a day. She has memorized it! She loves to sing along with the birds. Great book.
