I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist who uses books extensively in my therapy sessions. This is one of my favorite children's books to use with students. It's great for making inferences, talking about feelings, the sequence of events, and making up our own lines for the wordless pages. It has a sweet story line that all of my students love.
We just got this book in the mail today based purely on the fact that it got some many five star reviews and it was the medal winner. I opened the book on my own to make sure it was age apporaite for my 3 and half year old son -- I ended up laughing out loud ! This book is simple, whimsy, clever and about friendship. The art draws the reader in and makes very excellent use of the page. Today alone we've read the book three times!
I got this for my 19mo-old son, and we read through it in so much detail, looking at all the pictures and animals and what is happening... When I said it was time to say good night to the book, he held it to his chest and said "bed!". I let him take it to bed and left the hallway light on for him so he could look at it a little longer. For another 15 minutes we heard "Airpane. Uh oh! Mouse. Airpane. Tree. Oh no!" on the monitor.
It's now a week later and it's still his absolute favorite and still goes to bed with him.
