I purchased this book for my daughter several years ago when she was learning to read. We had such a great time reading these stories together. They're great for beginning readers. When a friend's daughter was turning five, I looked everywhere for this book with no luck. To my delight, Overstock.com had the book, and at an awesome price! The shipping was $1 and the package arrived promptly. The only thing that I had a problem with was a small tear on the inside cover, but that is easily overlooked by a five year-old. Overall, I was very pleased with this purchase.
