A cute, quick read, excellent for toddlers and the pre-bedtime story. The drawings are simple and clear and the prose is easy to understand, with good vocabulary and sentence diversion to help a new reader learn. Read full review

User Review  - TamaraBronson - LibraryThing

Pages: 29 Reading Level: 1.2 This is another great book for beginning readers. It has short, repeated sentences that will help with word recognition and quick reading. I would want students to use this book to independently read so that they can succeed. Read full review
