This is a beautiful bed time story full of love. It depicts the chaos of a typical busy family, but shows the thread of love that holds them all together. I love the last scene where all the kids are in bed and mom and dad are on the couch having together time. It makes one want to sigh and say, "That is how it should be..."
The illustrations are colorful and a bit chaotic. This would be a perfect bedtime story to share with any little one.
