Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We've been exposing our son to books pretty much since he was born. (I know, I know, we are those kinds of parents.) We've liked several children's books, but this one has become one of our favorites. It's simple, straightforward, and easy to read. The rhyming pages really appeal to small children and infants. The illustrations are easy to interpret, colorful, and surprisingly artistic for this kind of book. This is a board-book, which makes it very sturdy and capable of withstanding assaults by the grabby little hands and vicious little mouths. Our boy alos loves to bang it with his palm, which I guess is another selling point for the book. It's a beautiful little book that can bring your child many years of joy.
