My 2 1/2 year old loves this book


I remember this book from childhood and I bought it for my 2yo and 1yo daughters for Xmas. Explores themes including sharing, friendship and the power of the smile. My youngest loves the pictures and my toddler adores the story. A great bedtime read that we enjoy together several times a week.
