I have recommended this to all my friends with young children. The illustrations are beautiful and I find my two children with the book just looking at the pages just to see what they missed the last time they looked at it.
Yes, it has a wonderful message as well. The power of positive choices and influences and my kids understood this too. We have children's books all over our house and this one is now residing in our 'favorites' section along with Dr Seuss and a few others.
We have decided to video tape my son reading it since we enjoy the book and how he reads it. We will be sending the video with the book to some young friends for Christmas (and I will get my copy as well!)
But if you are excited to read it with your kids, it brings the story to life. Don't worry about a few big words. Kids don't know all of the meanings to every word, but they can understand the story through context, just like we do.
Pout Pout is wonderful. I have it for my son who has loved it since he was 6 months when I found it. I gave it as a shower gift. My friend's new born loves the rhythm and feels soothed by hearing this book.

I love the book, but kind of sad because it was slightly torn in the back when received. Maybe buy from a different sellerPublished 2 days ago by Becca
