I have a 3 y/o daughter and we are huge fans of the Donaldson/Sheffler team and this is one of the better ones. This story is easy to read and has a nice rhyming rhythm to it. There is a lovely message in the story about experiencing the world and helping others. The board books are very kid friendly and easy to travel with.
Great environmental awareness story
I bought this for a 2 year old as a gift. However, it it is not just a picture book. It has the most amazing rhyming story of adventure and environmental protection! There is also an underlying storyline about moving out of one's comfort zone. Suits 4 - 5 years and up.
A great book for 2yrs +
This is a good book with a captivating story line. Presently I am finding it a bit too long for my 13mth old. Im sure he will get more enjoyment from this book as he gets older. I have put it away for now. This book is probably more suited to the 2-3yr old age group. The little one does love the colourful and detailed illustrations.
My two year old loves this story!
My toddler loves the illustrations and the book is easy to read. Thank you
This book is great.
Good book for young children. My daughter loves it

One of my sons favourites
