As much as our child loves us reading the story of Tonis's potluck dinner gone wrong for her, she love to trace her finger along the oneline illustrations. The illustrations and colors are some wonderful it could almost be a coffee table book. A strongly recommended read for your children 3-8 years old.
Wonderful bright colors, and fun to read rhymes for children under 10. Toni decides to have a potluck dinner party and calls each of her friends to bring an item, but because of the background noise, they each bring the wrong thing!
