Love this book.
Our 3 year old has been showing interest in learning actual words and wanting to read them himself and this book is perfect. Encourages a love of learning and a great read out loud book for focusing on spelling and pronunciation.
Highly recommend.

A book that shows what a gift reading is, and that honors both teachers and avid students.
