Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Must-Have for Boys or Girls" After one read my girls were reciting the lines and acting out the scenes. It's a fun rhyme with a lesson rolled into the story. The surprize ending will be enjoyed over and over again. Suggested age is 9-12, I would say it's easily appreciated by 3-5 or 6-8 year old
