My 2 year old daughter asks to have this read to her EVERY-- SINGLE-- NIGHT! She absolutely loves it. If you have an artistic child, you should definitely get this book.
Our granddgtr. started reading simply by going thru familiar books - but particularly loved this one for the simple phrases and easy words per page - she took off and developed her own expansion of the 'story' along with reading it.
This club is great for eager readers - the selections can be geared to every child's ability and challenge !!
My grandson loves books with lots of color, this one included. Very happy with purchase. Bonus history info at the end of book for adults and budding artists.

A world of possibilities and it is OK to think outside the box-imagaination is a wonderful thing. I bought this for the school library. We have several of Eric Carle's books. A good addition to the collection.
