My son is 19, but remembers the nights when I read to him before he went to bed. He told me those were the best times. He told me he remembered all the voices of the different animals, as I read in each different animal voice. I wanted my son to have that book. I gave the original book to mother's with small children. So when my son moves on to be his own man, sooner than mom wants, I will send this book with him. So, some day, he can read to his children.
