“Pages Numbers?”
This is such a great little book. My 18 month old daughter really enjoys me reading it to her. The ONLY problem is that there are NO PAGE NUMBERS so it doesn't list what page each story starts on. Other than that, I really like it. The stories are basic for really little kids but still great for older kids like 5-7 years olds.
