I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
We do listen almost weekly. My son (age 9) surprisingly loves it. Its a great little story.
Great story. Nothing offensive. Humphrey the hamster really enjoys learning with the children in his class. and has adventures, too.
I personally enjoyed how Humphrey goes home with each child including the teacher and we get a glimpse as teachers as real people. Something young kids don't really think about.
Yes, the story keeps moving smoothly.
No, just that this is a first of many for my family.
