We recently got a chance to review this colorful and fun book. This is one of those books that young readers love. The pictures alone tell a story and the text is easy for them to read and fun to understand. We enjoyed reading this book and our 8 year old definitely loves reading it to the younger kids in the neighborhood.

We hope you will check it out as well because we definitely recommend it.
