I love this book, as does my 3 1/2 yr old daughter. The idea is so clever and actually works like a memory game. The words are lyrical and educational, and the illustrations are lively and captivating. This is an unusual book - it's fun for the reader and the listener! Hard to find a picture book that meets that criteria! Buy it.
