    A year ago I got this book when I wanted to formally introduce numbers to my then 18 mo. old daughter. We had already seen a video about the story on you tube where it was sang. She loved the song, so when we got the book she immediately wanted me to read it to her. Although she likes the book very much, and it is very amusing to hear all the things that happen to poor Johnny, the book itself isn't that "toddler friendly".The book is very small and the spine does not allow for the book to remain open, so you always have to keep both hands holding each side of the book. Now my daughter is two and is capable of doing that but she can't focus on the illustrations as much as if she didn't have to hold the book open so it won't close. Eventhough the book spine dissapears when standing next to the other small books on her bookshelf, she manages to find it for me to read.Along with this book for numbers I got her: Over in the Meadow, By Ezra; 1 is One; Hippos go Berserk; Ten Apples Up on Top; Brainy Baby 123; Five Silly Monkeys; My Very First Book of Numbers, Carle; Ten Beads Tall; and The Wonder of Learning Numbers.

    I grew up with the video "Really Rosie" by Carol King based on these books and It is wonderful! I am really enjoying reading/singing these books to my 3 year old daughter at night and she loves them too. (I got the 4 pack) and they have taught her the alphabet, (expanding her vocabulary quite a bit), the months of the year in "Chicken Soup with Rice" and to count to 10 and back again in "One was Johnny". Maurice Sendak is probably my favorite children's writer and if you know "Where the Wild Things Are" or "Little Bear" in both print and TV, these books are a must have for any parent and child. A real Treasure!

    Love this book. Introducing a second generation to it. Having as much fun as the kid to whom I am reading it.

    It's great to have this available as a board book, so I can share it with younger grandkids not quite ready for paper pages.

    ANYTHING by Maurice Sendak is more than worth the price, but I've loved the Really Rosie series of story-songs since I was a kid myself, and delight in sharing them with my kids now! They love 'em, too!

    I love this book. I have given it as a gift many times. Counting and rhyming and great illustrations

    Own the nutshell library in the tiny boxed set and the baby loves these stories as well as "Really Rosie" video by Carole King. Bought the larger paperbacks to travel.
