It's a great introduction to learning the differences between verb forms and it's a great basis from which to build on the vocabulary, using other stories and activities.

It turns out my third-grader is completely captivated -- that's a great book. When the big kid reads it to the little kid, we have a winner.
I think the illustrations are simply amazing -- they carry the learning to a much deeper level.
Nice that there is an activity at the end of the book for the kids to do.
I also recommend pronoun, adjective, and noun -- I have all four.
