I work at a library and I borrowed this book from the library. I now have to purchase it for him. When I told him that I was going to take it back to the library he threw a fit NO NO NO!!!!! This book is now in our home library collection. At the end of the book the author uses all of the symbols in the book in a short story. He is only 21 monthes and knows all of the symbols that appear on the that last page of the book. I don't especiall care for the choice of cut-out design chosen for the flower or the fruit but he seems to know what it is.
