Our daughter loves this book! We got this for her when she was a newborn. She is now 9 1/2 months old, my hubby reads it to her just about everyday. He has the book memorized by heart. We have others but I think this is still her favorite. Probably because of the emphasis he's able to put into it. For example:
"With a red comb on it's head, the rooster crows, "GET OUT OF BED!" (the capital section he says in a high pitched sing song roster like crowing sound, if that makes sense.)
When the duck is swimming in the lake, "quack, quack," is the sound she'll make. (he puts an emphasis on the quacking sounds.
"The sheep has a coat of soft white wool. She munches grass until she's FULL!"
"Here's a cow looking at you. Feel her nose, she might say, "MOOOOOOO"
"With a curly tail, here's a pig. Lots of food makes him big!" When he says the word big he makes the pig's tummy look bloated by pushing up the back and squeasing the sides. She laughs at that.
"The goose has a beak, webbed feet and wings. Can you touch one of these things?" He flapps the wing at her and she usually grabs at it and throws the book at him. ha ha ha.
Can hardly wait for her attention span to be a bit longer to really be able to enjoy the other books we have for her. This is a great beginners book. Each animal has different parts on their body for the children to touch while the adult reads aloud. Also very bright and colorful. I will probably buy her a few more of these type of books since she seems to like them so much.
