This is one of the books all 3 of my kids can agree on at bedtime. We love Zoe and LHA!
This story is hysterical. I first picked up because the title made me chuckle and I have a Zoe. It's definitely for older preschoolers and up. Zoe Fleefenbacher's hair is quite animated and might be a little scary for younger children. The story has a great cadance, some nice vocabulary words, rich illustrations, and gives you plenty to talk about as you read. My daughter loves books and this is a new favorite of hers.
