LOVE this book for my toddler. We've sung the original version of course, but he actually prefers this version. I think a large reason for that is because Long's version included tangible items my son has contact with (humming bird, night sky, books, warm bedspread, shooting star, etc) as opposed to things which really don't enter into his daily life (horse and cart, billy goat, diamond ring, etc.). Also, Long's version focuses on sharing things with Mama, not Papa buying off the kid's love with random presents, which is why I prefer this book.

Overall, this is a cute book with nice illustrations that I reccomend for new and expectant parents, to replace the outdated version of the song. You will not be sorry for keeping this book on your bookshelf.
