I bought this book for my 4 year old nephew. He loves pop-up books, but sometimes destroys them way before their time. This book is sturdy and interactive, but tough. He can make a tail wag or feel dog fur. You can't go wrong with this book.
My son is too young to really take care of this book. BUT he loves his DOG book. He's had the book for several months and still younger than the recommended age. He has ripped off lots of parts, tails, etc. from the book. We bought another one (and another Tails book) for him to enjoy once he's 3 or not going to rip tails off anymore. So, be careful if buying for a baby or toddler!! :-)
This is a really fun book for kids. It has dog "fur" that you can touch and "levers" to pull that make the dogs move. It's the kind of book I would've liked as a kid. The pictures are great too....which is actually the reason I bought the book -- I needed dog photos.
