My daughter is almost 3 and we have spent the past 5months holding hostage the library's copy of this book. She absolutely loves this book, the characters & all the fun times they have being children. She will get up in the middle of the night to grab the book and bring it back to her bed. I always find her sleeping with this book in the morning. I highly recommend this book, especially for those readers who are enthusiastic with their storytelling. There are so many opportunities to add energy and personality to this beautiful book. I hope Rosie/Alinda, Kathy/Cha-Charoo, Lenny, Dolly, Pudgy, & Sal find a home with every child.
