Big, pretty board book
At first i was a bit disappointed with this book. my daughter, then eight months old, was not very interested in it though she loved almost all her other books. she is now almost a year old and in the past few months she started pulling it off the shelf again. she loves looking at the pictures and picking out the animals. i think the pages were too complex and crowded when she was littler, but now she enjoys taking in the pictures and searching out the animals. this is a big, sturdy, colorful book. each spread has a little window giving a peek at the next animal to be discussed. the rhymes are pleasant with just the right amount of words. the illustrations are in a pretty collage style. i would recommend it.
