Cute Story

I read this story with my ten year old; well he was ten when we read it, he's now 11.😂😂 In any event, he is obviously not the intended age group for this book, but we love reading together, and although we're more often than not reading books such as Gregor the Underlander and others of its ilk, we also enjoy dabbling in some lighthearted cute, funny stories from time to time. For me this is thrilling, as he's my baby and I'd like to keep him that way as long as possible. 😏😏


In any event, this is a cute story intended for very little ones and introduces them to the basics of counting from one to five. It is extremely engaging and is adorably illustrated.
