Book is very cute for babies and toddlers. The picture doesn't really show the book as there is a bright red elmo puppet in the middle of the book. You use your fingers through the back to make the puppet act out the pages. My baby loved to grab elmo and have him squeeze his fingers.
My kids have loved this book. When they were really little they were really excited to see Elmo moving and singing to them. The Elmo is a puppet and you can move his hands and mouth. As they got a little older they still enjoyed the book. I'd say this is a great book to have for kids up to age 4 or 5 but is great at around age 2-3.
