Music spoils it

It's a fantastic book but the music spoils it - being endlessly repetitive and loud against the voices. It affects how it can be read and REALLY needs an option to turn the music loop off.

Nothing to it.

Really not worth £1.99. The same poem and pictures and a bit of colouring

Great buy for my 3 year-old

My son loved this, particularly the roaring dinosaur! Lovely illustrations and music, and educational (showing opposites) but not dull. He enjoyed the colouring function, too.
