“My son and I both loved this book. It is really well-written with short and sweet rhymes. The object to find on each page were perfectly challenging—not too easy, not too hard. I am always on the hunt for books that allows my only child to just be a 6yo boy. Many of the books we find are just crude, but this book is both appropriate and creative while allowing some good laughs.”
