We bought this as a grift for our friends' children because we enjoyed it so much ourselves. A must for any family library!

My whole family LOVES this book! It actually made me giggle while I read it, it is just so cute! Every book by this author has a lesson and is written in a rhyme-like way. Very much Dr.Seuss like. My youngest is 6 and can read it himself, but my 10 year old loves to read it too! Highly recommend it!

This is a great book for kids. A short animation has been made based on this book that can be purchased separately and together would make a great gift.

We came across this book in a park. It had been left by someone as a "Travelling Book", so we took it home to check it out. I read it to my daughter (19 months at the time) and she fell in love with it. She carried it around, flipping through the pages with excitement and "reading" it to us over and over. I explained that the book wasn't for keeping and that we would have to share it with someone else soon. She held it to her heart and shouted, "I LOVE this book!" with deep sincerity. Sooooo, I tracked one down online and bought it through Amazon. It's been months since we first found the book and she still loves it. She still "reads" it daily and gives it a kiss before putting it aside.

As a parent, I think this is a great book. I love the art style and actually got a sense of nostalgia as some of the forest images brought back childhood memories of time spent in the Northern woods where I grew up. Also, it was a joy to find that the writing flows beautifully. Some rhyming books seem forced in places and you know the author struggled. This book has a natural flow and rhythm that is a delight to read aloud over and over and over ...
