I have actually bought six of these books as I have given one to all of my friends that have young toddlers. My son loves this book, especially at the end when Elmo throws his hands up! Very cute, can use it to teach basic words like "cup, banana, mama, peek-a-boo, etc." I first bought it when Jake was 6 months...he is now 18 months and loves to show me how to read it and make Elmo throw his hands up....plus, he LOVES Elmo, as most kids do at this age. I would highly recommend.
