I read this book to my daughter when she was a toddler (she's now 31!) It was one of her favourites and also mine. She quickly picked up on the idea that she could make the noises from the book and it made her feel included not only in the story but also in the telling of the story! It is a remarkable book that hits the education spot on so many different levels.
