I read this book when I was younger and now I can read it to my son! I sing the song as we read together! The pictures are also super cute!

Fun book for young children. They always liked to "see" what was in her stomach! Bought for a baby shower. We're giving books instead of cards (little more that a card but a hard cover book lasts longer).
