Best For Upper Elementary/Middle School Readers And Reading Aloud,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a delightful book, but for upper elementary/middle school and adult readers. Amazon's description indicates age "8 and up readers", but I think the word choices and sentence structure are directed at the "up", not the age 8 readers. The 280 pages, mostly all text, are also likely to deter the young readers.
I am taking it with me when I visit my son and his family in a few days and look forward to reading it to my 8-year-old grandson. I know from books that I have read to him on past visits that he enjoys stories where animals are the main characters. But it is not a book that he would enjoy reading on his own. .
The drawings of the characters and that illustrate some of the scenes are excellent, too bad there are not more of them.
