Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful rhymes & pictures The pictures are very cute on each page - a mama animal with a baby animal and the rhymes on each page are very easy to remember. My boys love this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Baby Book This is my all-time favourite baby book. We received it as a gift for our first child when he was born and he still loves it now at age 3. I am looking forward to reading it to my 2 month old daughter soon. I have given this as a gift to all the new moms I've known since it was given to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Baby Book The watercolour illustrations in this book beautifully convey affection and love. They make a charming pairing with Fox's words, which combine a lovely, soothing rhythm with a somewhat optimistic (?) theme of it being "time for bed".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bedtime Book Ever This is the best bedtime book ever! We started reading it to our daughter at 8 months old and we have read it almost every night since! The soothing rhyming sounds seem to keep their attention, and with only one sentence on each page, they're not bored with the same picture for too long. The pictures are great and teaches them animals at the same time! Great book to cuddle up with, as we do every night!
