I discovered this book through my granddaughter who had borrowed it from her school library. She begged me to read it over and over again. I found it to be very enjoyable. The illustrations are bright and very animated. Coupled with the sing song verse in which it is written, I found it to be very captivating. We enjoyed this book so much, I immediately purchased it so all the grandchildren can enjoy it. If ordering online be aware that this book comes in two formats. I recommend the hardback version. There is a paperback floor version that I feel is too bulky and would be difficult to store or keep in good condition.
