"I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book."

Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 8
Interest Level: 0 to 3
Reading Level: 1.6
Age of Child: Read with two boys, one year old and three years old.
Young Reader Reaction: My 3-year-old was intrigued by the pictures of the babies. He made observations about the babies, such as the "similarity" between the twins. My 1-year-old lost interest.
Adult Reader Reaction: I felt that this would have "read" better if it had actually been a song with a melody. As it was, it was repetitive and a little "new age."
Pros: This book has a positive message: you are IMPORTANT in this world and you make a difference.
