Best bedtime or anytime book
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 20, 2011
I'm a Grandma, age 68 with 4 grandkids from 3-8. I bought this book essentially to have sit down private time with the youngest 3 yr old boy, who I seldom get to visit. I picked 4 "projects" for private time with each grandchild during our week long family beach vacation. This book was for the youngest. Au contraire! We started on the book; he snuggled in and loved it; his sister, age 4+ gravitated to sit on the chair side arm, also loving it; then cousin age 6 and finally cousin age 8 couldn't resist and all gathered around about 100 times of reading this book! Whew! It was great, but also a family vacation for all the adults too, so this became our goodnight book.
If you like to read to kids or have them read with you, the illustrations are great and "family participation" is even greater as they will surely cheer in with each animal sound and you only have to read the "lead in"! I adore this book as you can laugh, have animation with your youngsters in school or home... just a refreshing bit of realism about "sleep".
