For reading out loud you need a few runs to get the timing right and for our recently turned 4 year old I had to add a few more words to have it make sense.
I personally wasn't a huge fan of the book but our 4 year old loved it a lot.
It is clever it is an endless loop just like the unanswerable what came first the chicken or the egg.
Is a good book for showing cause and effect and how all things can be connected.
