I think that this book is one that children would enjoy because the language used in it is fun and almost child-like at times. It is as though a kindergarten student is narrating, which I think that is what the author is going for. I liked that aspect of the text.
The illustrations in this book were filled with color and details, and I really liked that. I also liked the fact that the characters were different races because it seems like that does not happen very frequently in childrens books that I have read so far. The facial expressions made me laugh at times because they looked very realistic when expressing strong emotions.
My mom's friend has a daughter who is in kindergarten, and my mom was invited to read to their class. She selected this book and recommended it to me because the kids seemed to enjoy it a lot. I would also pass on this recommendation to others!
