Little Kid Reaction

Our child loved the music and the book. S/He particularly liked being able to follow along and "read" the story independently.

Big Kid Reaction

This is a wonderful rendition of this classic children's song. Learning (or remembering!) the verses is made easier with the pictures, but the CD travels in the car with us, too.

Pros:

The bright colors and lyrical nature of the book make this a highly entertaining product.

Cons:

Absolutely none.
