One of best picture books for children ever. My children loved it, and now my Grandchildren can experience it as well. This makes a great bedtime story book for very young babies to early readers. The prose is well written with some rhyming without being tooo much. For the very awake or strong willed child, we have found that reading at bedtime is an important part of the bedtime ritual that helps some children who have difficulty transitioning from daytime to nighttime.
