Silverstein is a classic. Even though this book is too complex for my three yr old, it is a must have for when he is a little older.
Shel Silverstein at his best! Bought the book because my 4 year old mixes up words and really calls them Runny Babbits. The words are easily rearranged for adults to read to children not yet old enough to appreciate the humor.
My granddaughters and I had a wonderful time getting our tongues tangled as we read this book and laughed at the pictures.
I usually love Shel Silverstein, but this one wasn't great. It was kind of cute but way to confusing for my 6 year old niece to understand.
