This is the first book I read to my three-year-old daughter. She chose it at the bookstore, and I told her we'd read it a little bit each night. I'm still not sure she understands that the story isn't over when we close the chapter, but she is fascinated in helping me recall the previous chapters' events each night before we move on to the next part.
There are enough pictures to keep her interest, and the plot is predictably simple. Still, to be able to read a "chapter book" to my not-yet-in-preschool daughter is an unexpected and heartwarming development in my journey as a parent. I'm thankful to Daisy Meadows for that opportunity so early.
