I don't understand why some parents insist that these Barbie books,which were obviously designed for children,appeal to them and not their child. I have a 2 and 4 year old who love both the book and movie. At this age all children care about are looking and reading things that are bright and pretty and fun. They couldn't care less about it's content. I see so many negative reviews that parents give on products for children that children absolutely love. It's strange that the parent wont let their kids just be kids and have fun, when they grow older they will have plenty of time to see more interesting and complicated things.
