Helpful Score: 2
The book was cute. Not exactly what I thought it was going to be, but it was ok. I think I enjoyed reading the kids' questions more than I cared about the answers. The book starts out strong, but loses steam by the end. At the beginning, I was cackling with laughter, but closer to the end, I was just skimming the pages.
