A friend got this for my son when he turned 1. It has been a great book to read before bed. The rhyming and rhythm are great for toddlers and the pictures are fun. I've given this as a gift to all my friends who've had little boys.

This is a really cute story. It shows the imagination of little boys and all the things they find important in their life. It also shows the parents to stop and smell the roses while they are young. Enjoy the little things ... it goes by so fast.

This book has lovely illustrations and a story that rhymes. It is delightful because it depicts many of the real and make-believe adventures that little boys love to have.

I picked this up and again cried right in the store 'as I did with 'Someday''. I am lucky enough to live in the hometown of the author - and was in his store 'The Blue Bunny' when I read this book. My own son is a boy EXACTLY like the little boy in this book - and his favorite toy on christmas is always the big boxes - for a fort, a ship, a clubhouse - but it's always the box! Everyone who has a boy will love this book. !
