This was the hands-down favorite storybook for all 4 of my children and usually chosen for bedtime snuggle time with Daddy. It is a slim book with the usual selection of poems accompanied by colorful and endearing illustrations. I recently bought 4 new copies of this book, one for each of my kids, to save for reading to their own little ones someday.
A go-to in our house, especially when my daughter is up way too early. Darling illustrations.
