The books itself is colorful and exciting to my son, but not very durable.

My son loves Elmo. My son loves balls. But he does not love this book. It's boring. Five two-page spreads (with one flap on each) attempt to recreate an edition of Elmo's World -- talking to Dorothy and a baby etc. -- but the result is kind of a mess. The text is supposed to be chatty but it is ill-suited to reading aloud. For example, one spread reads "Let's ask the baby how to catch a ball. Thank you, Baby! Watch Elmo catch a ball. Like this! Gotcha! Can you catch a ball?" The cardboard on the flaps is flimsy and easily bent out of shape.
This is not an evil book, but it was disappointing and I don't think we'll get any more of this series.

I bought this book for my 1 year old niece, and she loves it! Any book that has flaps is a sure-fire hit with her. However, this book's flap construction doesn't live up to the rigors of a 1 year old. She's torn off 2 flaps already and she's only had it a month. I wouldn't consider her an extra strong toddler, nor is she hard on her toys, but the flaps in the book just aren't strong enough. For that reason alone, I'm giving the book 4 rather than 5 stars.

My toddler daughter has loved other books more intensely than this one so I was surprised when this one started coming apart in a few days.

First the flaps all ripped off. Then the cardboard pages came loose from the binding. I tried salvaging the pages for her to use to make stacks or just to gather up and put into drawers, etc. since she likes Elmo. Then the paper started peeling away from the cardboard. By that point, it was just garbage.

I've had similar problems with the construction of other Sesame Street board books, especially very small ones (usually seasonal, like Halloween books). I've never had a Sesame Street board book last more than a couple of months. None of my daughter's other board books have fallen apart like these so I know it's not her treatment.

The content is fun and the photos are a nice change from pen-and-ink illustrations but what good is a book that practically disintegrates in a month or two?

My daughter loves this book! We own 3 out of the 4 Elmo's World books and this is by far her favorite! She loves to lift the flaps and can point at the different types of balls described! The only drawback is that the book isn't very sturdy-other than that-it's great!

My 2-year old granddaughter LOVES Elmo! And this book is fun for her because it is so colorful - plus, she loves the little 'doors' that she can open to can see what waits behind! A wonderful - and inexpensive - gift for a small child! (There are other books in this series as well!)

My 9 month old twins would not sit still to read a book until we found this. They love it and the Babies one too. They laugh every time I lift one of the flaps. I cannot recomment this book enough.

We have four Elmo's World books and this one is my 17 month old daughter's absolute favorite. Night after night she will pick this book for me to read to her. It is a really simple book with nice, clear pictures. We have read this countless times and yet she continues to love it. Highly recommended!

One of my grandson's first words was "ball" and then "backet ball" (basket ball). If it is round, rolls, and hopefully bounces, he loves it!! I bought this book for him for this Christmas and although he hasn't seen it yet, I know he is going to love it, especially because of the flaps that he can lift! Great book!! (For all ages).
