I give this 3 Stars with a grave reservation. The book makes good use of rhyme, rhythm, and repetition to engage the young child (2-5 years) in the story and love of books. These three elements of our language are especially loved by this age group and make this book an excellent experience for parents wanting to bond with their child and expose him/her to books and the written word.

The author, Michael Sampson, predicts that children will join in with you as you read the chants and, eventually, the entire story. I agree; such is the nature of learning language. I would caution, no--scream a WARNING that this is not to be thought of as "reading." Sampson quotes the philosophy of his mentor, Bill Martin Jr: "With subsequent readings your child will begin chiming in with you. Soon after, they will read it by themselves as they match the song in their heads with what is printed on the page."
