This is truly a wonderful picture book for children who are just beginning to read.

The illustrations by Jessie Judge bring this book to live as its young readers, with the aid of their mothers, read the story. Having been brought up reading Dr. Seuss, today, as an adult, I know how difficult it is to tell a story in rhyme, and Nicole Bruno Cox has succeeded in doing just that.  Just as children today are still captivated by the Mother Goose nursery rhymes, they’ll be captivated here as well.  A wonderful addition to this book is the subliminal lesson which it communicates regarding the importance of listening to one’s mother when she tells you something you should not do.

For delightful book and the message it communicates to its readers I’m happy to give this book 5 STARS.

I’ve received a hardcopy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
