It's such a great book with its chanting phrases. We've been reading it since she's was 1 month and she was enslaved even at that time. And since we live in the mountains it's all things she can encounter so we chant it on some of our hikes. Great baby shower book also so you won't give the same as everyone else but it's sure to be enjoyed!
