Customer reviews

I simply adore Eric Carle's books and pictures. This one is one of our favourites. I bought for my son when he was 18months and he immidiately fell in love with the animal pictures. The pictures are clear and lovely and the flaps tend to stimulate chidlren's curiosity. The only drawback is that this version is paperback and it had to undergo cellophane tape surgery. I would recommend the board book for little hands.show more
