Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still love it ....30 years later My sister and I had this book as children, somehow it got lost. For my daughter's 1st birthday, my mom had bought her this book, not knowing it was the same book. When my sister saw this book, she cried. We loved this book as children, and still do. The illustrations are wonderful, and it brings back childhood memories 30 years later. Definitely a classic to keep and hand down to your grandchildren.
