If you're a parent and you've ever set out on this task, it's not an easy one. Most books targeted for toddlers are very watered down. My oldest was ready for something with a bit more plot without taking away the pictures. That's truly hard to find. As a former reading teacher, I want to embed in him a love for story prior to school, and this book delivers! It's probably not for your first bedtime stories with a young baby, but it's great for the next step. The story is cute. The words are a little more intensive on the page, but my not quite 2 year old can still grasp it. Be forewarned, your child may want to start eating more blueberries, but if that's not a problem, get this book. It's worth the price, and in the short time we've had it, I've already decided it will become a keepsake as they grow.
I happened to have a tiny tin pail from some garden purchase, which, with fresh blueberries, allowed my little one to "plunk" and eat as we read, over and over and over - which is a good thing.
It's also one of the books featured in "Before Five in a Row" - a great book that takes you and your little ones through classic books and suggested educational activities pertaining to the stories.
