Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Fifty years has passed since Margaret Wise Brown wrote The Important Book and now she follows it up with Another Important Book...It's a great tribute to the toddler years. It was a gift for my 2 yr old but it's my 4 year old that wants to hear it nightly. She sweetly describes the thrills of ages 1-6. It's a keepsake book, great for a gift.
