Life is changing now when I take the three kids to the book store; even the one and a half year old wanders around and wants to pick her own books. This was the first book she chose to read. This book was a great read for her and for the older two. They remembered their training time. The story is a fun read and well written. The illustrations are fun and the bright vibrant pallet will appeal to the young readers. But only time will tell if it will help, but either way an entertaining book the family will read many times over.
