I just received my copy of this charming little book today. Our children are both in college, one almost married. So I don't think they will be too interested in it just now. But I sat down and read it as soon as I opened the package. It is warm and soothing. Kind of like a cuddle. This is my first introduction to Sharon Lovejoy. I actually went onto Amazon to find one of her other books, Trowel and Error, when I stumbled upon this one. I can't believe it is out of print. I'm embarrassed to admit what I paid for my autographed issue but it is worth every penny. I'm in love with it and can't wait to read it with a future grandchild! Thank you, Sharon Lovejoy!

I received this book as a 1st birthday present for my little daughter. I have been reading it to her since then; she is now 2 1/2 and helps me read it. She knows the tenor and rhyme of the words and can finish each section with the animal or plant that she knows rhymes and ends the sentence. It is, as well, so sweet at the end of the book with the reflection in the tide pool. Even at 9:00, when her eyes droop, she looks for herself. But to end the book with Faretheewell is the icing in the cake. I love to read this as the last book before she goes to bed with that salutation. I wish she would write more like this because, again, it is just so sweet.

This was a pleasent suprise. I've always enjoyed Sharon Lovejoys' books but now I wish she had written and illustrated more childrens books as well. This book introduces names of lots of small critters and a lot of uncommon color names in an enjoyable rhythmic expirence. This is definately at the top on my list of favorites.
