The book lives up to all the amazing reviews. My lil one has always loved Eric Carle books - the white background and contrasting color pic. The book is a good size for my 20-month old. He likes to flick through to look at all the animals. I agree with one of the reviewers about the touch and feel being not exactly as explained in the description - its only the spider web that a child can feel and the multi-sensory is a gross exaggeration. But its not a deal breaker.
