I was so disappointed when I bought this ebook. I was hoping that since I paid money for this copy of Goops, it would have both the illustrations and text intact. Instead, I only got the text, no illustrations at all. I would expect this from a free version, but not one for which I paid money.
My Grandma used to read this book to my brothers and me when we were little. Some how with all our moves through out the years we have lost this book. I am so happy to find it. I could recite this book over and over and I haven't even seen it in 25 years. This book is highly recommended. It is fun and also teaches manners. I bought two books. One for my mom, and one for my family and me. I can't wait to read it to my children.
When I was very young I was raised on the Goops. My mother who is seventy-five had a copy, and we went through two copies with five siblings, ages 33 to 53. It's a wonderful way to raise children to be polite, not to mention the fact that I can quote the Goop Book at almost thirty-four that I learned at three. What am I doing here? I'm thinking of ordering one for my two children, 5 years old and 6. Some things bear repeating, whether you are 75 or 5.
