This is one of my favorite children's books. I read this one to my kindergarten class every year as well as my own children. It is fun, entertaining and cute. This book is fun as well as the other book, "Edward the Emu" about the Emu's at the zoo. This is the story of Edwina and her quest for a job. She has babies to think about and must look for work to support her family. The sing song words will have everyone reading along. The illustrations are great and you will love this book!
