There is ONE copy of this on PBS.

I don't have children, and right now I don't have any credits, and it seems silly to buy credits for a book so I have it whenever I (hopefully) have children of my own, but this was one of my favorite books as a child!

If my parents quoted this book once, they quoted it a million times. I don't think we made it through a car ride without one of my parents, usually simulantenously, quoting the line, "Don't distract the driver, keep both feet on the floor!"

Parents always say that kids don't come with a "users manual," but this book should be required reading.

I urge anyone with children who doesn't already have this book to grab it!

(Amazon says it is recommended for ages 4 to 8)
