Little Kid Reaction
Our daughter squealed with delight as she remembered each of Mouse's friends. "I remember Moose ..." "Oh, look at Pig ..."
Big Kid Reaction
This is a delightful book and a great companion to the other If You Give books in the series. That said, the characters are named for the animal they are, so you don't have to know any of the other stories to enjoy this one. This would make an excellent easy reader.
Type of Book:
This board book re-acquaints young readers with the characters in the If You Give series.
Educational Themes:
This is a book to read just for fun. It is an excellent choice to read with toddlers and preschoolers if you want to practice concepts, colors, animal sounds, object identification. It will also be a great confidence builder for new readers, as there is a lot of repeated, familiar vocabulary.
Reading Level:
1.6
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:

Age of child:
Read by an 8-year-old girl.
