Although the recommended age for this book starts at 6, my 3 year old daughter just LOVES Bink and Gollie. The illustrations are adorable, memorable, and lend themselves perfectly to the reading of the story. We enjoyed this book so much at the library that we bought our own copy PLUS the 1st installment of Bink and Gollie: Best Friends.
