Young Reader Reaction: Despite lots of attempts to read it, s/he came over to close the book whenever we started reading.
Adult Reader Reaction: As stories go, it's rather simplistic. The language seems stilted, but we thought it would be perfect for introducing new words and body parts. Try as we might, it was "no sale."
Pros: There is only one sentence per page and the illustrations are colorful.
