Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE Harold! I've bought this book for so many birthday parties that I had to stop because I couldn't remember who I had given it to and who I hadn't! Possibly my favorite children's book ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic story. My two year old "reads" it to her little sister by basically describing what she sees on each page. It's an imaginative and entertaining story for kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Classic This is one book I don't mind reading five times in a row. It's simple, but imaginative. My daughter also likes to "read" it to herself. Very cute, especially all the pie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for little imaginations "I would give this 13 stars, which means I like it a lot. I like that Harold got himself out of trouble by drawing things. I like it when he went to sleep. My mom likes that he "drew" up the covers." Age 4
