I do not normally write reviews of products but, for this book, I will make an exception. Contrary to the Amazon listing, there is a Hardback edition of this book although, it is considerably more expensive and harder to acquire than the Board book that Amazon lists. Although this may be listed as a Board book, there is little to no difference between it and what one would describe as a paperback. Content wise both editions are identical, so it is left to the buyer's preference to choose which edition is worth buying. Personally I would recommend the Hardback version, as it is afforded with a sturdier binding.
