      Beautiful, simple story with gorgeous illustrations. Suitable for 0 to 3 year olds, but my 4 and 7 year olds still love it. A gorgeous gift.

      This book would make a beautiful gift for someone who has just had a baby. Babies need to hear beautiful, lyrical language, rhyme and pattern, and this book is just perfect.

              Great for 2-3 year olds

              My 2 year old boy loves this book before bed. No real narrative (more of a poem) but still sustains interest. The illustrations are wonderful.
