The book works soothing wonders in effacing the farmer and his children, and lets us see a world we normally only imagine. I wager many a parent has fallen alseep with a child while reading this charming book -- everything is so safe, and so calming, as the vibrant colors of the day illustrations give way to those of dusk and night.
Bedtime books don't get much better than this.
The story is gentle and soft and sweet. The illustrations are charming. The rythm that the words set is rolling and easy. This is an easy book to read over and over agin.
This is a great bedtime story in my opinion. However, my son also enjoys reading it and making animal sounds.
I did know the size of this book when ordering. It is a cute book and cute story and I give the story 4 stars.
The book I ordered and received, I give 2 stars. So my review is based both on the story and the book I received.
STORY - 4 stars
Small boardbook - 2 stars
My 21 month old did not care for this small boardbook. He looked at it, but because the book was so small and the writing even smaller, he didn't care for it.
I'm sure it would have been better in a larger form, but I wouldn't recommend this book in the small form.
