    Don't bother with this book

    I was running out of ideas of things to do with my toddler. This book mostly tells you obvious things to do, like look in a mirror, play hide and seek, tape paper to floor and have toddler draw with cayons. The only thing going for it was it had a few cute songs with finger play to do. I am returning this book.
