She adores the pictures, the rhymes are easy for her to remember, and she invariably ends up gleefully finishing the lines with me, and predicting the next page. She also points to the relevant illustration at the same time, telling me what will happen next ("... the bird saw it fall ...."; "... the frog will find it for her ...."; "... the dragon! the dragon is following her!")
It's a good length for a bedtime read - 10-15 minutes, depending on the amount of interaction.
Finally, it's a nice little feel-good story, with a positive message of kindness and co-operation; and all characters happy at the end (apart from that mean old dragon, of course).
I bought the "board" version of the book, and I'm glad I did, because it has been manhandled, dropped, sat upon, and (on 2 occasions) wedged in the back of the sofa. I can't honestly say that it's 'as good as new', but it is still very much fit for purpose, in one piece, with all pages intact and untorn.
