A new story everynight! Jul 29, 2008
This is a fantastic book! It is filled with stories, songs and poems- you could read a new story evernight to your child while putting them to bed. We absolutely love it!
The Ultimate in Bedtime Books Nov 23, 2007
This is, by far, the best bedtime book I've run across. From the wide selection of sleep-related stories, poems, prayers and songs to the lush, vintage illustrations and soothing colors, everything about this beautiful book is thoughtfully aimed at lulling a child into peaceful sleep. (FYI-- it works on fathers and grandfathers, too.)
Gorgeous little book! Feb 12, 2007
I was very pleased with the aesthetic of this book, as well as the content. It's perfect for that very special cuddle and read time, with lovely illustrations, and a great variety of literature to choose from.
