Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.

Cute illustrations, but the writing is horrible... the meter is so inconsistent, and it finishes awkwardly. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Samantha Li
Such a classic book! It is very calming and can be used as a bedtime story. My little one loves to find the butterflies on every page. Really well written. Read morePublished 15 days ago by eDowds925

A favorite bedtime book at our house since we bought it. She loves to make the sounds of each animal and then says goodnight to them.
Nice sturdy book too.
