This book is too cute. My 2yo loves the different sounds. The book is quite large for a board book but it's good quality.

we love this book and bought it as a gift for someone else. I never expected it to be this large of a format, I didn't check the size closely enough. I think the little one who is receiving it will love this book, brightly colored, perfectly timed rhyming, what's not to love!see moreof the reviewer's review
