I had fun reading this book with my Preschool Storytimers. This is a great vocabulary building book without being too didactic. The kids could relate to five-year-old Joone who describes an ordinary day in her life. It sparked a great discussion about how important it is for kids to read to their moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas every night before bed, and how many books they deserve if they've had a good day and go to bed early. We had fun playing find Dr. Chin, Joone's pet turtle who likes to ride atop Joone's head and sleep next to her in bed. Great interactive read. Highly recommended.

I love any book that features a grandpa who built his own yurt and lets his granddaughter make him a daisy crown to wear. This sweet story with fun and colorful illustrations features Joone, her grandpa, and her turtle, Mr. Chin.
