My three-year-old has requested this one on many occasions (of course, she always thinks her birthday is right around the corner). The die-cut pages are lots of fun, but this copy of the book is pretty damaged, even missing a whole page. It is an enjoyable read and she memorized it quickly because she likes it so much.
