I usually dig thru the 'just returned' books at the library, because I somehow assume that maybe those are better. People do their online research,etc. So that's how I stumbled upon this book. In the almost 15 years of reading to children (9 of which, my own) this book is a for sure stand out. It should be in classrooms. My 4 yr. old giggled from the start with the cute drawings of babies in their diapers & how babies grow. And from one story to the next (it takes about 10 min. to get thru the book) he was captivated by finger pointing at each word, which is so boldly written & easy to follow, but holds a nice story line for learning. And then all the little pictures with a child doing something & the word describing what they are doing...awesome learning potential! He loved pointing to each picture & I said the word. I then asked him where certain characters were. It was cute when he didn't know what the whale on the spring was (a playground toy). So cutely illustrated. B&N PLEASE keep this book in print!!! This is a PERFECT GIFT for infants to age 5. Enjoy!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
