The book came very quickly which was giood to see. My grandson will receive it for his 1st birthday and like most first year boys he will like it. He is learning purple well also. So I'm sure he will like my reading it to him.
i gave this book as a gift at a baby shower. i have never actually heard of the book, but after reading summaries, i think that it would be a great way to inspire creativity and imagination in the young ones. as a little boy builds line upon line with his single crayon, he imagines endless, exciting adventures- there are no limits to his creations (a skill that is so important in life). the processing & shipping of this book was speedy & hassle-free.........great job!
This book uses great imagination and is so interesting that it fascinates adults too. Grandchildren enjoy the pictures and words and have excellent chances to use their imagination. It is an example of what children should have to challenge their young minds. I strongly recommend it for children of all ages.
