    I would highly recommend this book to anyone, no matter what age!

    This is a fantastic book. My husband and I sing the book with our grandchildren at least a couple of times a week! They also listen to it in the car with their mother. The older children know all the words and the three year old is quickly catching on! This book has definately taught our grandchildren to just be who they are.

    So much fun for children of all ages.

    I purchased this for a group of children ranging in age from 3-5 years old. The children are totally engaged while we're listening to the CD and turning the pages. The adult helpers are also loving it.

    I just love this book!!!

    I am a preschool teacher and my class can't get enough of this book! Ever since I bought it for the class the children ask to read it, actually sing it, everyday at circle time. The CD is great and the tune is catchy. It's a great story of accepting who you are.

    Happy Wisconsin Mom of 2!

    After bathtime my two boys race to the bed and wait for me to turn on the cd. We sway back and forth and sing our favorite tune, Marsupial Sue!! It's so much fun to see their eyes light up when they sing and the illustrations couldn't be better! Well worth the money spent!

    What fun!

    I've been reading (singing, actually) this book to my 4 month old since he was just a month old. He loves it! He gets so excited when I show him the cover. This is a wonderful book to share with kids of all ages.

    So Much Fun!!!

    My 3 year old daughter LOVES this. She listens to the CD over and over. She can sing all of the words. We have even used listening as a reward for potty training - and she is finally getting it. Excellent! I would recommend it for anyone with a preschooler.

    My 3 year old daughter loves this delightful story and especially loves dancing to the accompanying CD!! The illustrations are also wonderful as is the author John Lithgow. We can't wait for his next book!!
