My children both loved this book and I just love reading it! I'm a Kindergarten Teacher and each year I look forward to sharing this book with my new Kindergartens. They love it! It's so much fun to read, the word choice is perfect, and is so enriching for the children. I would say I read this book 5 or 6 times a month, the children request it often. I pretty well have it memorized by now but I never tire of reading it aloud.
