Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Series for Our Little One We received this book as a baby shower gift and my outdoors loving husband and I quickly fell in love with them. The writing is not too childish so it will grow with the kids for years to come. I also love that you can get coordinating pjs from Little Blue House to match the characters in the book!
