    Not the 52 page edition :-(

    Still cute, but way to expensive.

    Classic!

    I adored this book as a child, so I brought it to a baby shower in lieu of a card with a personal message from my family to the soon-to-arrive baby. Hope they love it as much as I did.

    You get what you pay for

    Part of the cost is the re-issuing of the book. The reader and sounds are excellent. For many more "mature" people the cost is well worth it to once again experience this wonderful CLASSIC.

    No music

    I was disappointed to learn, after buying, that the song is not part of the interactive activities.

    Do not get it for the Read It To Me feature

    I was able to see all the pages when I used the Read It To Myself feature, but the application crashed every time I tried to use the Read To Me feature.

    Classic!

    My son and daughter (3&9) both love this book. I own the paper version as well. I remember this story being read to me when I was young. Very cool that it was made interactive, ingeniously too.
