Little Kid Reaction

This book has been a constant companion for our child since we purchased it nearly three years ago. For MONTHS it was the must-have book at bedtime; now, s/he periodically selects it (probably every 6 to 8 weeks) to be read together at night.

Big Kid Reaction

The book is very informative, and it is nice to have sturdy books that have real information. Still, because the book is more a collection of facts than a story, the reading does get old after a while.

Pros:

This is a sturdy picture book that engages the child. It is perfect if you are looking for non-fiction titles for toddlers and preschoolers.

Cons:

None, other than it doesn't have a character-driven story.
