Read by a teen with a 4-year-old boy.
My listener liked the pictures and wanted to read this story again right after we finished it. He immediately recognized right from wrong, and offered his opinion about what could happen to the culprit.
This is a colorful book, and I liked the illustrations. I was surprised, but happy, that he liked the book.
The rhyming story offers a light approach to the story, which has a lesson about staying safe, telling adults where your going. It can reinforce rules kids may already be aware of.
None offered by this reviewer.
