Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We purchased this as a third birthday gift for our granddaughter and she is totally in love with it. Within a week she can sing the whole song, and the ultimate seal of approval, it was the item she chose to take to show and tell at preschool!
The illustrator is as good as I have ever seen for a children's book. The story is whimsical and a good time for my little girl. Sometimes she is in the mood for the CD, and other times just wants it read. A+.
