I was worried that my two year old would not understand this book as some of the words were beyond his understanding. I worried for no reason. My son absolutely loves this book and requests it every night without fail! The storyline is simple, nice and encourages sharing and friendliness (all the things that you want your children to learn). The illustrations are excellent and have so much going on in the background as well. This book is a must have for all parents that enjoy reading bedtime stories as much as their children enjoy listening to them.
