Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book went to a bright 2 year old in her Easter basket. Little Ramona is very good with books and has a set of Gossie board books. She loves the little characters and enjoyed the Easter egg hunt in the new volume. This is good for rereading and will be a favorite for some time. We look forward to more books in the series.
