This is a great book that has some beautiful illustrations in. Students and young children love to read this book due to the nature of beat and rhythm of saying Tikki Tikki Tembo's full name multiple times throughout the story. I remember reading this story growing up and absolutely loving it. I am a bit unsure of how it aged though as I am unsure of it's cultural appropriateness. Something that would be interesting to look more into. But it will be a name I always remember!
