This book is perfect for toddlers and infants...it is a great bedtime read and is lovely for gift giving. My 1 year old god daughter loved this book!

The rhymes are incredibly well-crafted, and the story is tons of fun besides. I always recommend this one to new parents, because no one seems to have heard of it.

I'm reading this to my 6 month old and she loves it because of the nice, rhyming cadence it has as well as the pictures. I like it because of the old fairy tale characters and the beautiful illustrations. I imagine my daughter will like it at preschool age as well since she can get into the fun of picking out the hidden characters. A fun book to read aloud!

I'm a freshman in college and I still love this book! We used to read it all the time in grade school when we went to the library and it has stuck with me this whole time!!

I love this book. My mum first read it to me when I was 2. It was the only book I wanted her to read to me. I'm older now and I have the whole thing memorized. The reason I liked it was that it was an easy rhyming book. And you had to find the people like Tom Thumb and Robin Hood. Im in high school now but I still read this book. I hope everyone else likes it as much I did and still do.
