We read a chapter or two at a time but she always wanted me to keep reading. There are enough pictures in the book for a child but also few enough that the imagination is challenged. Obviously there were descriptive sections that were a bit over her head but over time as we read it over and over she will grow more into the book and make new discoveries as she understands more and more. It didn't seem to bother her or keep her from enjoying the book immensely.
I decided to do our first novel at this age and picked this one based on the recommendation of The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelese.
The only reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 is because the book ends rather abruptly in my opinion--as if it was left unfinished. I won't ruin the end for those of you who have yet to read it but it leaves you hoping for a sequel that never was.
This is a terrific first novel to share with your child!

They are heroes.
