    Adorable

    A wonderful story for young children. Be careful, once my kids read about Acorn, they really, really wanted a pony, and we live in the city. My copy had no editorial problems and was well formatted for reading.

    Cute but with editorial problems

    My three year old son really enjoyed listening to this story. It was nice to find something appropriate for a very young audience. However, I would not want a young reader to consume this book for all of its editorial issues. It was annoying to have to correct the text on the fly during our read alloud, and it was disappointing to have paid for a story that doesn't appear to have been proof read.
