What fun! Definitely for the child who already knows how to read, this title will be a lot of fun! Sometimes those numbers are tricky. Especially with IM speak so popular among the youth, this book shows that these wumbers are not always as simple as gr8 or see you l8er. Many times it IS a game and the illustrations are needed to figure out the words. (For example “flying 10ies” which is accompanied by some sneakers flying off of children’s feet on a swing set). This book is definitely worth a read!
