has fallen apart, from readings to my own sons as babies and toddlers, whose small hands clutched the pages and pointed to the different objects as I read them aloud. This wonderful book was part of the bed-time (and middle of the night) ritual for my children as for countless others. Now I give it to other parents as they begin with their own newborns.
mall children need familiarity at bedtime, and this story has given so many of them a remembered ritual to go through and a feeling of comfort to help them get to sleep - enhanced of course by the slowly darkening room in the illustrations.
