This is a creative book for "little ones" to enjoy. It is colorful, simple and a has a good message.
The author's illustrations are done very well and are eye-catching..
The story rhymes part of the time. The ,message is good except the "flow " of the tale is "choppy". It lacks rhythm.
Still, I feel it will keep the child's interest and can be used in teaching a few topics.
I offer a Three and a Half Stars rating.
*This book was gifted to me with no requirement of a positive review. This is my honest review.
