This book is great fun to read to my three-year-old. The rhymes are fun and the subject perfect for all sorts of silliness while reading. However, the recording for the read to me function is certain to cure even the worst case of insomnia. It is read at a snail's pace with about one second silent intervals between words. I certainly would have reconsidered if I had known.

This is a favorite of all babies. The rythm is perfect. Your baby will want you to read it so often you will have it memorized in a week. This is appropriate for infants through 18 months

A friend bought this for me and I've read it to my baby boy since he was days old. The rhythm of it hypnotizes him. Older babies can start to mimic the illustrations and my three year old nephew memorized the words easily and started chanting along with me. Highly recommended!

I bought this book for my grandson's first birthday. This book was a favorite of my daughter's when she was young (she still remembers the entire book by heart!). I great addition to establishing a children's library.

Our grandchildren loved this book just as they were turning one. If you read the story with the rhythm that the text produces, the little guys tap or drum along.

This book makes it easy to interact with you child while reading. The natural rhythm of the text and the illustrations to go along with it make this book a classic and a favorite.

This is my grandson's favorite book. We borrowed it from the library so many times I knew we had to buy it for him so that he could have his own copy. He is 18 months old.

Both of my daughters have loved this book, so we had to buy it for my niece, too! The rhythm on this book is unbeatable...unless you're a monkey drumming on a drum...

This book was given as a gift to my children when they were small and they loved it. Now that I have a 2-year old grandson, I had to order it for him. The book is written in such a way that gives you a rhythm while reading. With the rhythm in your voice and playing with your child's hands while counting their hands and fingers, it is a fun book. They will ask for it to be read over and over again! My grown children laughed when they saw it again and even remembered some of the verses and they are in their late 20's now! I was happy that Barnes & Noble was able to order it for me.

My year old son loves to have this book read to him. He loves to high five and drum on things. Great book to show our hands, fingers and thumbs to each other.

This was a book I read to my two daughters when they were young. Now I bought it for my grandsons (2 and 1) and they LOVE it too. The rhythm and repetition is engaging and they both wanted to hear it over and over. Their 7 year-old sister even reads it to them when I'm not there.

My little sister loves to read this book but it is a little pricy!
