My boys love to read. We visit our local library often.

  1. How cute! I love hearing the perspective of children. Great job letting him review it.

  2. This is such a cute book and my nephew would love to read this book. We go to the library all the time to get books and movies. But I have not heard of this book. I will have to look for it. It is so interesting.

  3. My granddaughter's both love books and would be the perfect age for this one. My oldest granddaughter is also a little obsessed with Panda's right now (not sure why:) I think this book would make a great bedtime story. Thanks :)
