Πρόκειται για μια τρυφερή, συγκινητική και πανέμορφη συλλογή μικρών νανουρισμάτων που μπορούν να σιγοψιθυρίσουν οι γονείς στο νυσταγμένο αγγελούδι τους εκείνη την ώρα που παραδίδεται αμαχητί στον ύπνο του. Μέσα από μια κρυφή ματιά που ρίχνει η συγγραφέας στον κόσμο των ζώων και τα υπέροχα, λυρικά στιχάκια που έγραψε δημιουργείται ένα ανεπανάληπτο σύμπαν γλυκύτητας, καλοσύνης και ασφάλειας που τόσο πολύ έχουν ανάγκη τα μικρά παιδιά!

Το βιβλίο, που είναι άλλη μια φροντισμένη έκδοση από την «Κόκκινη

Very sweet book about bedtime and makes a great bedtime story for the little ones. The art is amazing and makes the illustrators almost look like photographs. I didn't love the format of the text (poem) and although it was rhyming it didn't always seem to flow. Would make a great gift for a new baby.

My Review: This book got a little long for Munchkin but thankfully the stunning illustrations kept him busy on the longer pages. The illustrations really made this book, they are so soft and yet life-like. The tone is gre

My mum bought me this book for me..when I was about 17. Yes, 17 hahaha she absolutely loved the illustrations, plus I am a sleepyhead AND she loves me, so it seemed like the perfect gift. After I got over my initial surprise, I looked through the book and fell in love with it. The pictures are beautiful. This is not just a children's book; it's for anyone who admires and appreciates great artwork, or anyone who loves cuteness!

This book is very reminiscent of the book we read to both boys as babies - beautiful illustrations of various animals with little rhymes for each one. I'm always in favor of books that calm the boys down at bedtime.

I began to write after joining a creative writing class. I had no success with article writing, or short stories, or fiction, but the first children’s story I wrote, for a
