I personally did not care for this book too much. I think it would be a good book maybe to read as like a nighttime story if the child was interested in it, but I would not recommend it to a classroom. If you were to read it to kids I would say that it is for 3rd graders and up. When you open the book, one side is full of words and the other side is the picture so they words can get overwhelming if read to younger kids.
