Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
9 to 12

Age of child:
Started reading with child nearly 3 years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. This is a must-have for your child's collection. It would be a wonderful gift from a birthparent, as well.
Little Kid Reaction
Our toddler regularly pulls this from the shelf. S/He doesn't want it read, s/he only wants to turn the pages (slowly) and look at the pictures.
Big Kid Reaction
This is a beautifully illustrated book. The few times we've succeeded in reading it together, it is quite nice. We're hopeful that we'll get a turn to read it again some day.
Pros:

The themes are universal, whether you are a biological or an adoptive parent.

Cons:

None. Although there is an intimation of Mother Nature as the narrator, it really speaks for men and women.
