The book is filled with short sentences, so your child won't be overwhelmed by too much text.

My dad read this book as a kid, and he introduced it to me when I was growing up. He told me that he wished he could draw himself a bunch of pies with a crayon because his mother wouldn't let him eat sweets very often. We loved to read the book together, and it was one of the first books I learned to read on my own. It was also one of the first books that I ever read to my dad from start to finish.
