My daughter LOVES (LLLLOOOOOVVVEEESSS) this book! She has other Baby Einstein books but this one is her favorite - as soon as we finish with it she will want to read it again (and again and again). She is 16 months old and already hisses at the snake, roars at the tiger and lion, growls at the bear, and hoots at the owl. Two days ago she floored me when she pointed to the tiger and said "tiger." The great thing about this book is that it has animals from many habitats (jungle, savanah, artic, forest, ocean, desert) and tells you a little about each habitat. The story is cute - Jane is looking for an elephant and travels all over the world trying to find it - and entertaining for children. My daughter listens to the story and loves lifting the flaps to uncover the animals. She has ripped two of the flaps off (the book has for ages 18 and up) but I do not regret giving it to her at a younger age. Her love for this book has grown her love for animals. A definite "must buy."
