I had heard this book read aloud at a birthday party, and loved it! I bought it for my 3 year-old as a pre-birthday gift. He was very engaged in the book as it is interactive. We read the book for a few weeks before his birthday, so he was "ready" for his birthday. We have placed it back on the shelf until the next birthday, as his enthusiasm for it ceased after his Big Day! I do not think the book could be given to a child much younger, as it is a story to follow.
