If you have a preschooler, you have to get this book! It is easy to read; really cute; and just think of all the things you can make with a stick. I am a preschool teacher and use this book every single year. After reading it 3 or 4 times, we follow up with a craft using a stick. My 3 and 4 year olds come up with really great ideas! I also love listening to them "read" the book. Yes, they have memorized it and use the pictures, but that is the first step in becoming a good reader.
