{My thoughts} – I have always been a huge fan of the Romeo & Juliet story. When I saw this book I just kind of had to have it type thing and add it to the collection we have growing for the babies.

The cover of this book is simple and on par with the Romeo & Juliet theme. It has an image of Romeo & Juliet holding hands but separated by a rose. The illustrations and the colors are wonderfully done.

This particular book is based on the Romeo & Juliet story. It is also a book that helps to introduce numbers 1-10 to babies and toddlers.

When you first open the book the page in the right has a number. Under the number is a word. And then on the left page is a simple illustration that helps explain the number and the word. This goes forth through the rest of the book.

I really enjoyed reading through this book with my daughter. She enjoyed it as well. She was interested in hearing about the book and seeing what I had to say about the images and words. However, she was more interested in turning the pages. She is just at that age I think and it makes reading with her so much fun.

I think that this book will make a great addition to any child’s library. I think that they can benefit greatly by being introduced to the classic books that many had grown up with. This is definitely a wonderful book and worth the purchase!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
