It’s an okay book. It’s definitely missing a big part of the style which stinks. It’s a thick board which is wonderful for those grabby hands. The colors are nice and bright and it is easy to read. Just wish the rest of the story was there.

This is a great book for a little one! It's such a fun way to convey the concept of perseverance to a really young child! I bought this for a friend's baby, but I read this book to both of my kids for years! It's an all time favorite!

I couldn't find it in stock for store pickup, so had to order online with a few other books & items. Other items were fine, disappointed that this book arrived very warped, especially since it will be given as a gift. With quarantine return policies, I decided to keep the book and attempt to flatten with heavy weights.

Maybe I didn't read the description close enough, but I thought I was buying a hard cover and not a board book. The board book is still nice and quite sturdy.

My little one actually really loves this book. The drawings aren’t as modern but she just stares at the pages. Good size book for the price.
