This is the perfect book to read from newborn on up. Boynton's fun rhyming style (a cow says "moo", a sheep says "baa", three singing pigs say "la la la") is enjoyable and catchy for the youngest listeners. Both of my kids loved this book so much that more than one copy fell apart and had to be replaced (due to use, not poor quality.) I have given it as a gift many times and it has been as well loved by everyone. I am now buying a copy for my newborn nephew. A must have in any baby or toddler reading library!
