Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The cover art is rather attractive and will entice your little "reader." Since this is a board book it will be able to handle the touch and use of little hands, little mouths, and little eyes. "Boy of Mine" will be wonderful for a baby's book collection and great for before a nap story or for bedtime reading. And the simple text with color illustrations are just right for little listeners, just the right length for young ones attention span.
