Introduced to this book when my son was in preschool. He is now in his 30's! I purchased the board book for a grandson and he enjoys it as much as his dad did. It's a must have for your child's library.

I think this book is great for the baby/toddler who seems curious about everything, cuz it's not just the sweet little story that so many children's books are. This is more along the lines of the B'rer Rabbit books, only this is for a younger child. There's mischief and unexpected events, and it's just plain fun.
