Another board book my son picked out to read with me. He picks more challenging books with my wife, not sure why I get the easy ones.

Anyway, a fun story about a child who wants to get away from his mother and the lengths she will go to, in discussion, to find him. It can be interpreted as creepy and controlling, much like Rainbow Fish can be viewed as bribe people to become your friends, but there's a quality to the art that makes it endearing.

The format of the story is repetitive, son's move and mother's response, which gives young readers the confidence to attempt on their own. Plus the more difficult words are repeated to give the child confidence to try again if they stumble on it the first time.

As a parent reading it to their child, it's a great one that allows for two voices and is the right length to not wear the parent or child out.
