This is an excellent book for young children. The illustrations are beautifully done and are appealing to children as well as adults. The image to the right as each page is turned helps children learn the concept of using pictures as a clue to guess what will happen next in the story. This is an important concept in teaching literacy to young children. The price of the book was reasonable and the service was exceptional. Also, I would like to commend this company for reminding people to write reviews using complete sentences, proper grammar, and to check for spelling errors! BRAVO!
Although I ordered this book for a book report my daughter loved it. What I was disappointed about was that it was listed as a hardcover but was actually a board book. We were still able to use it and my younger children can enjoy it as well.
This is the best children's book I've read in a long time. The illustrations tell the story and, as is usual in Jan Brett's books, there are wonderful details for children (and parents) to explore on each page. There is a very funny "surprise" ending that made me laugh out loud! I'd recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Even if you don't have kids!
