I purchased this book from Amazon as it was on a Reading Group book list. All the members of the group found it very disturbing and we all wished we hadn't bothered. Though the writing style was good the content read as if the author had some sort of mental or behavioural problem and was trying to seek redemption through her writing.The detail was unecessary and very distasteful and in some cases downright ridiculous. We wouldn't advise anyone to read this book and felt it was not worthy even to be given away - the best place for it was the dustbin!
The product was very well received by the baby, who spends a lot of time "babbling" to it, thus encouraging language development and social awareness. A very successful and appealing gift! JLamaze My Friend Emily
