Play Hollow loves this book because:
It is one of the best types of books, those that parents and children will keep coming back to again as again as a child grows! We love the diverse pictures, the simple story with rhyming and number concepts for the littles and as the child gets older you can explore the end notes to supplement social studies and geography curriculums as well as follow activities that target sequencing, step-by-step directions, and life skills with delicious results!
