Simple look-and-find book for toddlers with familiar characters and easy rhymes. Fun.

Review by

This is a good book of a few rhyming couplets featuring fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters, perfect length to catch the attention of a young child - and enough detail in the pictures to keep the attention of an older one!For those people who are concerned about this sort of thing, there are some references to "the Wicked Witch" (she's not shown being any more wicked than anybody else, and she eats pie with her neighbors at the end) in the book, and there are also a few images of the three bears being very careless with guns while hunting. I don't find that this hampers our enjoyment of this book, but if these are sensitive topics for your family, you may want to check the book out of the library before committing to a purchase.

This book has some lovely illustrations and a nice rhythm, but if the child doesn't recognize the character they will lose interest.

Loved it, especially having to look for the people or things!

I especially liked the cat gripping the the Wicked Witch's bottom.
