Good for encouraging imaginations

by alicesneary (WorldCat user published 2008-10-24) Very Good Permalink

My daughter is 13 months old and she hasn't been able to sit through the whole book in one sitting quite yet. It does require more attention span than some of the shorter "board" books out there.

But I love the idea that it's teaching her to make her own adventures and use her imagination freely.
