Little Kid Reaction

My daughter asked me to stop reading this book. Even though she thought the pictures were cute, She didn't like the story and said it wasn't believable.

Parent Reaction

This is not a fun, lighthearted story. I thought it was too deep for a young child (even as a picture book), and didn't enjoy reading it. I thought she might enjoy the story and was surprised she did not even want to finish it.
