Started reading with child at 30 months and still reading at nearly 5 years old.
S/He wanted us to read and re-read this one for several weeks, often more than once at a sitting.
This is a fun story. Even after you've read it once (and know the ending) you'll still chuckle at what happens.
The story moves fast and is sweet enough that you don't get bored with it. The illustrations are cute.
None. Just be careful that you're toddler or preschooler might want to be just like This One and That One.
Buy. It doesn't cost much, and the story will delight everyone in the house.
BARNYARD DANCE! THIS LITTLE PIGGY DAWDLE DUCKLING
For older kids, it's a great way to show them why it's important to be SPECIFIC about what you say! For youngsters, it's just a funny story where the kids get the better of Dad.
