Beautifully illustrated and very well written. My kids had so much fun listening to the story and then re-enacting it on their own. Overall a great book for young children that is also enjoyable for adults.

This book just came across my desk and after reading it I can't wait to share it with some K-3rd grade kids! It has a couple of excellent audience participation parts: "I'm so fast, I fly past" and "I may be slow, but watch me go." Bright, easy-to-see-from-a-distance pictures also make it a great one to share with a big group of early elementary kids.
