At one point, one of the children spotted this book and expressed an interest, so I got it down and read a few poems to them. I carefully replaced it on the top shelf. They began requesting it more and more, and soon protested when I returned it to the shelf beyond their reach. I gave in, and let them leaf through it -- under my supervision. Finally realizing that it was senseless to limit their handling of this book they so obviously enjoyed, I moved the pristine hardcover to a lower shelf.
I had no idea that two-year-olds would enjoy this poetry so much. While some of the poems are certainly at their language level, many are more advanced, and the kids request those just as often. I frequently find them looking through the book, naming the animals ("duck-billed platypus") and quoting portions of the poems ("lays eggs like a bird").
Now my son cannot even bear to part with this book at night, so it (along with a few others) goes into the crib with him. The binding is loosening and a few pages are torn, but I'll gladly spend another $22.99 to replace it, if necessary. It's a small price to pay for what may become a real love and appreciation for poetry.

My nephew loves this book. He is an avid fan of Eric Carle and loves all the animal pictures. He is too young to understand the poetry? But he loves being read to.Published 19 months ago by Alannah
