Had I read the reviews prior to purchasing this book, I would have realized it was a board book, and not a hardcover version like the product description states. However, being in a hurry, I didn't take the time to read the reviews, and thought the price was an excellent deal for a hardcover copy. It's a nice sturdy little book, about 5"x7" in size. Great for babies and toddlers, just not what I was anticipating receiving based on how it was listed on the website.

My daugher is two years old and loves to read & be read to. I remembered this book when I was a child and immediately knew my daughter would enjoy it as much as I did. It teaches counting and sizes and about the stages in a caterpillar's life. My daughter likes butterflies so she was really excited about the end. Now she wants to read the book to me over & over!

I bought this book online for my 4 month old daughter. Though she can't understand it yet, she loves looking at it 'coz its so colorful. It's also a good book to teach children how to count. Good thing, it's a board book so will surely last longer!

Loved this as a kid and bought it for my little girl as one of her stocking stuffers on Christmas. She hasn't received it yet, but I know she'll like it.

  • A. It is a board book. Perfect for toddlers. When you have toddlers and early readers, board books are much better than hard cover, I think.
