As a kid, I was a pretty avid book reader but have never heard of this book. I always read Goodnight Moon but for the life of me I can't remember any words besides "Goodnight Moon". So, after reading the reviews and noticing that people can recite this book without even needing to see it and it helps with a night routine I thought I'd give it a try. Now, my daughter is only 4 months old so she won't be going up and down stairs, exercising and brushing her teeth any time soon but she does love when I read this book to her. It's short, only 14 pages. And I bought the board book. Board books are small but the pages last much longer than hardcover or paperback in my opinion unless they're chewed on but then...no book would last that. Dimensions are 5.8 by 5.8 inches and less than an inch thick. I adore that it's not a long book so my babe can sit through it and it also gives me the opportunity to act out things which she loves.
The recommended age starts at 2 and I think it's the perfect night time book! It's easy to read, no word jumbling, easy to recite if you don't have it on hand and overall a really nice book! The illustrations are nice and bright even though it's a night book and there's one page that's "dark" the text is still bright. I love this and more importantly my baby loves it too!
