The story in this book is fairly simple....and not really a story at all, just several statement sentences strung together. I find myself having to make up more story to make the book last longer and be more interesting. My daughter is 7 months old though, so she doesn't really care what I'm saying as long as I'm saying something, but she loves the finger puppet!!! She has pulled on it really hard quite a few times and it is still completely intact, so at least it is sturdy. Overall, not a favorite, but not awful, either.
