“Adults and young children should find much to talk about when sharing this series together. The Talk-About-Books have been designed with great care. Pages are easy to turn, illustrations are large and framed with primary colors, the few words are carefully chosen and clearly laid out. Highly recommended for children three and under.”
“Children and adults will enjoy exploring the pictures and text, which invite and encourage language development.”
