5 great points. I love this book, too. But I think that older elementary school age children appreciate it even more than prek or kindergartners. They really get the adventure of being on a boat with friends, and can really get into creating their own collages.

The missing teddy bear and the repetition skew it young, for me, but I do see what you mean. My seventh grader liked the book, too!

I so enjoyed seeing how Philip Stead makes those collages.

That is a great point about featuring nonwhite characters. Children need characters they can relate to so they can learn to love reading. Thank you for this review!

You're welcome. It's a lovely book.
