Great if you are looking for a board book

Customer review by NaptimeCrafter

3.0 stars by NaptimeCrafter

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 Own Childhood Favorite

Customer review by ReesesPieces20

5.0 stars by ReesesPieces20

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!
