Gave my toddler the worst nightmares!!
My toddler loves books and animals so I figured this would be a great fit. Once I read the book I instantly realized it’s encouraging bad behavior even though it tries to teach children to have patience. We tried it a few times and she suddenly started having nightmares and waking up screaming bloody murder, which she has never done before. We stopped the book and the terror sleeps stopped. Maybe this is okay for older children who know the difference between fiction & reality but not a good fit for toddlers. It also encourages that if a kid screams for their mama, mama comes running. Even if it’s for a glass of milk.
