I think I would have enjoyed this more if I could have read it aloud to a small child at nighttime. It seems like the perfect book for reading aloud right before bed when it is dark outside and light inside. The text follows a logical pattern which also lends itself well to reading aloud. The illustrations started to grow on me more each time I read through the book. They don't immediately reach out and grab me, but I do think the color scheme of black and white with touches of gold enhances the mood of the book. 3.5 stars.
