Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little teary eyed. Used the book as my gift tag on a shower gift for my daughter who is expecting our first grand child. Cried a little in the store when I purchased it and expect to do so while reading it to her. But in a good way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great illustrations and creative imagination I bought this book for my son when he was 1, but he didn't start liking it until about 2 weeks ago (he just turned 2). He really focuses on the story and fully understands it at this point. He loves the animations and likes counting the ducks, lady bugs and crows in the book, but his favorite part is when we say his name out loud and when it's time to wiggle his toes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book and illustrations This book speaks exactly how any parent feels about there new child, SPECIAL! The rhymes are magical and I never grow bored of reading this book. What else makes this book great is that once your child understands what they are reading it gives them a reason for seeing the polar bears asleep at the zoo, "because they were up all night dancing for you!" Just love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Story I bought this book online as a gift for a new baby based on the reviews I read on this website. It is a lovely little story and I was happy to send it on to the new mom. For information purposes: it does have a bible verse on the inside front cover and mentions heaven on the last page. (I would have liked to have known this before I purchased the book.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is Truly a Keeper This book can be read to a little one many times over. It will prove to boost the ego and make the little one feel super special. The earlier the better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Wonderful Book & Keepsake This is a wonderfully written baby board book. The pages are very thick and sturdy and I am sure that they will hold up to many years of wear and tear. The words in this book are beautiful. This is the first book I bought my new baby Granddaughter and I made sure to inscribe a dediction in the front. This would make an amazing baby shower gift for anyone and every baby should know someone loves her/him and this book lets them know they are loved and cherished. This is a MUST BUY item.

He never tires of it and I am guarenteed to tear up! I love him more than anything and this book summed everything up that I feel for him. A definate must buy for a special child in your life!
