I cannot recommend this book. I am troubled by the language. Since this book is read to our little one several times a day it is important that the language be correct. I'm not happy that the words you and me are used (as opposed to you and I). Also, (I could be wrong about this) I don't think a sentence should end in the word too.

I am not suggesting that I have a superior grasp of the English language. But I do want to properly teach our BooBoo language. That is after all one of the major benefits of reading to your child.
