My daughter was 2 when we borrowed this book from the library and she loved it so much we had to buy a copy. Her favorite part is when it says "those chicks run wild" and she always says it with me when I read it. Its a really cute book.
Fun with words. Sudipta has a way of intertwining words that kids may not know into her rhymes and stories. Kids may not know but be able to guess or infer its meaning. All her stories have a moral. Love them all.
