I know the story and the song and I really liked that there was a cd included that had not only the song but the narration of the story. He opened the book and looked at the pictures first and said mommy, I really like these pictures. I read him the story and then we listened to the cd. He fell in love with this simple story. The illustrations are beautiful and I would highly recommend this book and sharing it with everyone.
