This is a natural. Why didn't someone do it before? A book that an 18-month older -- and up to 3 -- will find irresistible. Right down the alley of the modern educators, too, with appeal to the senses, in the simplest form, from ""pat the bunny"" with a picture of a bunny made very real by a bit of soft wooly fabric to touch. There's a bit of mirror to look into, and a ball with a real squeak in it, and a hole to put a little finger through, and a wee book with real pages to turn, a grand idea, successfully carried out. You probably know all about it already, but if by any chance you don't send for it now.
