We received this book in our Book Start pack and we have read it every night for quite some time - She is 20 months old now. I think the black and white illustrations are quite striking to her. She loves pointing out the penguin when its teeny-tiny on a few of the pages. She also loves making a 'weeeeeeeeeeee' sounds when the penguin is shown sliding down the mountain. Very cute that she loves this book so much.
