Oh my goodness! I can not say enough good about this book! It works wonders. It probably took 10 times of reading it before I actually got to the end of the book - my child and I would both fall asleep first! My kids, now half grown, still love to hear it. I always include this book in gifts for new moms and dads. My grown daughter took one to a youth camp she was working at all summer. She read it to whichever cabin she was in charge of for the night, and always had her cabin asleep before any of the other staff did. Once they found out her secret, the book was apt to disappear come night time! It is well worth buying and having either for your own kids or grandkids, or for gifts to others.
