Our 4 year old son loves this book. He loves the simple story and all the animals on the pages plus finding the hidden animals.

Im glad my toddler likes this book as much as I do. Graeme Base is one of my fave children's book illustrators & Authors so Im glad my little one is enjoying him too - im always a little happier when she chooses a Graeme Base book for me to read to her :-) This one has helped her to learn 'concern' about the animals and their dwindling water supply as well as the names of a few new animals that we had not yet explored... In fact it was her turn to suggest an animal today whilst singing 'Old Macdonald had a Farm"... She chose Moose :-D hehehehe
