5.5 / 7.0

First of all, a warning: This book is bigger than my 18-month-old child. (I bought it online, I didn’t read the dimensions, blah blah blah.) If you can handle the size, though, its’ great! Each page is essentially a stylish poster featuring an animal and its name. My kids love to read it, and it functions as part book, part decor!
