"Martin Waddell's Little Bear series is wonderful, and it was after we read them all that I went on a search for more books by him and found this gem. It's a gentle, beautifully illustrated story about a little girl visiting the ocean with her mother at night. It is especially good for bedtime as it is very soothing both visually and through it's narrative."

"This is a sweet compilation of Farm Stories that feature Mrs. Boot (the farmer), her children Poppy and Sam, and their dog called Rusty. If you can find this book with the CD of stories to accompany it, I really recommend it. Each story is 5-7 pages and the compilation is terrific for bedtime. The CD is fantastic for car rides or quiet times at home."
