Opinion: This was a cute kid’s book. I remember reading this book growing up. I’ve read this book to the kids at the daycare and they love it, too. Sometimes they got to act what the characters and monsters did. Another teacher put on a play about the book. Everyone loved it. The kids really enjoyed everything about it. They loved acting it out and helping with decorations and costumes. It helped teach the kids about the lesson of the book. One of the lessons is listening. There’s a time for playing and a time for listening. Then again it’s a kid’s book. They the pictures and the silliness of the book. Overall, this is a great book. This is a classic book. It’s a must for any classroom.
