My daughter and I picked this book out at the Library.  She is starting to learn sight words and to read. I love this book because it has repetition of the sentences. It's made it a little easier for her to remember what word were what, even if she does have a little trouble with the different flowers. I will definitely be buying this book soon.

I love this book. The pictures are beautiful, it is these pictures that my grand kids like, the words are fun but geared for older pre-school kids as it is long in text. I will read it over and over as the pictures support the written work.

I've loved this book since I was little, and it's still one of my favorite gifts to give!
