Overall thoughts: This charming book reminded me of my children… a healthy dose of competition! Repetition, rhyming and educational, readers will be excited to see who wins. This book has an excellent format that will appeal to children and adults alike. Look very closely at the engaging illustrations and your reader will understand why the winner won!
