“I teach first graders and find this book great for younger children… a mixture of safety and security as well as the excitement of the unknown. The subject is close to the hearts of young children. This story uses many words in children’s vocabulary while providing picture clues to reinforce the vocabulary. Illustrations are detailed, colorful, and provide visual support to the text… an excellent addition to children’s literature.”
