Thrilled to find this book on Overstock!

User Review  - cschrock - Overstock.com

My daughter had this book 20 years ago and I was thrilled to find it on Overstock for a new baby gift to someone else in the family. The book looks exactly the same and being a Caldecott award winner the illustrations are precious. Your little one will love it as well as learning a new language! Read full review
