    This is a beautiful book. I love the illustrations they kept my little ones’ attentions as I read. The story is fun and great to read out loud to children. It is also simple enough for new readers to read themselves. My six year old enjoyed reading along with me, and laughed at the ending. This is the perfect story to read at bedtime to encourage children to settle down to sleep.
