5.0

Like all BabyLit books, this one introduces the basics of the classic tale while focusing on an early childhood theme, in this case, counting. As an English major, I appreciate that this book both incorporates a couple of quotes from the play and has illustrations that refer to additional text. It is really just the very first taste!
