Is it any good?
First published in 1940, this endearing book has become a beloved classic and a best-selling children's book. The outstanding features are those that allow children to use their senses -- feeling, seeing, touching, and smelling -- as they interact with the book. The illustrations are simple black line drawings with yellow, turquoise, and peach colors added, and backgrounds are solid white or peach with a flower border; the effect is clean and uncluttered, making the activities the focus. The miniature book-within-a-book is charming and reinforces the value of reading.
