Excellent. Most children's books are OK. Some are terrible. This exceeds all expectations. The more I read it to my daughter the more I like it.

This story is great for K-2 graders just beginning to read. It also teaches the importance of sharing. Any children older than that age group it is not recommended because of the content for younger readers
