It's okay, I had an awful time reading this book aloud to my kid as well. It's not just you.

Much like Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night, this book has excellent illustrations that my daughter seems to love. Unfortunately, much like Diggers, this book also inherited some of the worst cadence I've ever read. Instead of improving on the prose, the author actually managed to become laughably worse. I'm not sure if it was supposed be some sort of awkward meta joke by making the writing a train wreck, but this book is downright uncomfortable to read aloud. It took a week or two of readings before I could get Diggers to sound like it flowed. This book, my daughter will probably outgrow the book before we get there.
