Read this one to Eli - it is in board book format with holes in the pages. On the 'wife' page, there are pictures of many different women. Then, you turn the page, and you see which wife the farmer picks. This repeats all the way to the cheese....

I read this for the 3/4/5 storytime, and though it's cute, I wasn't a huge fan of it for those purposes. The book is small - a little board book - and I think would be more fun if the kids could see the works and read/sing along.
