Read on July 15, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 2

Purchased a copy on Amazon on 14 July 2012 for Fritz. He needs to read this as part of his summer reading program for St. Mary School as he enters Kindergarten.

I believe the first time I heard this story I was in graduate school. I think the reading professor read this one. Anyhow, I just read Fritz's version. It's cute, I suppose. A couple thoughts . . . my boy needs to read this as he enters Kindergarten. It's a 2.4 reading level. Hmmm . . . Secondly, doesn't a story like this just give ideas to children of drawing on the wall?

Okay, so probably not. Then I ask, "What is the purpose of the book?" Seriously.

I am probably overthinking this, but I don't understand. Anyhow, Fritz read this with his mommy yesterday. He's growing up!
