This picture book is awesome! As a teacher, it has so many teaching points.

In the middle years, higher levels of thinking and comprehension can be explored. I highly recommend this picture book as a favourite that will be read time and again at both home and school.
I have probably read your book to my son about 50+ times and he cannot get enough of it, it has become quite the routine now. I just wanted to say thank you so much for signing the book. I hope for it to stay in our family for a very long time and will be giving it to him when he is older so maybe one day he could read it to his own children 🙂
