This is a book we have to read about 15 times a day. Addison loves to tell me the characters and saying, "Achoo." When she can't find this book (because I have to have break from it sometimes), she walks around saying, "Achoo, Achoo, Achoo." It is so pitiful, I have to bring it out of hiding.
My daughter sat through this twice in a row without trying to turn the pages before I'd finished each rhyme. The illustrations are so much fun to look at, filling each page with colour, and the rhymes are short and simple and funny. The second time reading it, she started to talk about what was happening on each page, anticipating the rhyme. So I think this is a book that is easily comprehensible for two-year-olds as well. And it was fun for me to read.
This was an okay book, the meaning was there but just didn't get fully through in the story. BUT Elmo wants to surprise a friend regardless of what he's doing is actually making him sick. But he cares more about his friend than his temporary discomfort. This is a level 1 book, and has repetitive words. So a beginning reader once they got some of the words down could read this by themselves and be proud.
River liked it mostly because of familiarity of the characters and the theatrical way I sneezed. Not much to this book content, but pictures are nice. As long as it is a loved learning tool, I'll make it work and use it to build on.
