My five year old daughter loves this book and so do I!  It is a great picture book / first reader.  The book takes us through a day in the life of Felix, Sam, Maya, their parents, grandfather and pets.  The gorgeous illustrations are labelled with descriptive words so little readers can start to connect word with meaning.  Think of it as a step up from flash cards with a story to boot.  Interspersed with the story are pages asking questions like, "What kind if home would you like to live in?" and "Which story characters would you like to meet".  On these pages are gorgeous illustrations and descriptions of different options the reader can choose.  These pages fit neatly into the overall story.  A brilliant book to share with your budding young reader, In would highly recommend it.
