Sturdy book and actually good size— good quality overall. My toddler and I love reading this book. We get animated while reading it. Good book to learn some of the prepositions for the kids like over , under, through. The story consist of a family going through obstacles and saying that they cant go over it, they cant go under, we have to go through it — just like life we have to go through some obstacles and we just have to go through it. I am not fond of chasing the bear part but it could be use figuratively and at the end of the day, you use parental guidance.
