Story and illustrations loved by my 4 yr old and myself! Well done on nook version as well with read to me feature a favorite of my daughter's since she was 3. Lately however, the read and record feature has also been discovered as a favorite so she can record herself reading the story out loud!
My 2 year old has loved Ezra Jack Keats' books about Peter since he was 9 months old. We bought this one in preparation for a new baby and our son loves this one too.
My 2 yr. old loves this book. She can recite it by heart. It tremendously helped her adjust to the new routine involving her baby sister.
I'm a 14yr old girl who has been in love with this book since the age of three. I will forever cherish this book.I remember reading it over and over again when my little brother was born so i wouldn't feel left out.
