I forgot how much I enjoyed poetry!  What a delightful way to read to a child and instil in them the love of rhyme.  The illustrations were so so cute – I read through the book several times because I enjoyed them so much.  I particularly like the picture with the little girl getting a shower!  Is that too cute or what?
Written for children who age from 3-7, this sweet little tongue-in-cheek book will be a wonderful addition to a beginner’s library.
