Rated 5 out of 5 by from great book This has been a favorite of my kids since my oldest was just a little baby. They loved the tabs looking at the animals that we would not normally see where we live.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun book This book is fun and has vibrant colours and pictures to catch the attention of the little ones. The pull-out tabs work great, our daughter was pulling the tabs in no time. I agree with the other reviewer that I find the ending of the book strange

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a Classic We were gifted this book for our baby, who is now 8 months old. Out of all the books we have he does enjoy this one somewhat, though not as much as others. It's a classic, so is nice to have in his library and i'm sure as he grows he will enjoy it more. It's nice as it has colours and simple shapes but the art has movement with it. The ending seems a bit weird to me, but that's probably just me...
