I picked this book up at the library just looking at the cover. Got it home to my 2 year old granddaughter and her parents. They turned on "Three Little Birds' by Bob Marley on YouTube after reading this book once through to her. And the fun began. She didn't want to return in to the library so we had to get her own book for her bookshelf. Great story, great pictures and the singing and dancing begin over and over again.
Beautiful book but the format is way too small. Really bummed because it is difficult to read for me and my toddler lost interest in it right away. Buy the book instead : )
