Our customer reviews

A beautiful book that myself read three times when I received it! It is full of amazing animations and the letters make this book special. I am really pleased I have bought it. In my opinion this book is suitable for children between 5-9. However, 5 and 6 year olds might find it difficult to read it on their own and understand everything there is written. I will use it with my class for story telling. CAN'T WAIT!show more
