Booktopia Comments

A very popular hardcover book at Booktopia. A great story for young children getting ready for bed. You can't go wrong with this one for kids aged one to three. It is part of the Premier's Reading Challenge so children in Kindergarten and first class will have to read it, but there aren't too many words and it is definitely geared for the little ones.

Product Description

A kiss, a cuddle, a drink. And a story - but not just one from a book.

From the team who brought you I Do It, here's a wonderful way to get your own stories started.

Check on Me will immediately become one of your family's bedtime favourites!

    Was a little disappointed. Didnt give this to my grand daughter as she has just gone into a bed and felt some of the story line would give her ideas for stalling her bed time routine
