    I was given this book for one of my children years ago, and I didn’t hesitate to buy it for a family member who is pregnant with her first child.It’s such a lovely little story, and the illustrations are darling. 💜

  2. Kat

    I bought this for my one year old and it’s not very captivating for her. The images and text are a little full for her. And me reading it. Sorry to the author and illustrator.

    personal favorite 💝
    bigger than expected! A personal favorite of mine 🙂 I did not like the book cover personally, but you can take it off and it is the same design on the hard cover 🙂 11/10 recommend ❤️

  4. Maru

    La historia y los gráficos son bastante sencillos. De cualquier forma a mi hija le gusta mucho y se lo sabe de memoria.

  5. Heather Sergi

    Sweet bedtime book for infants

    A Book Every Grandma Should Own
    I bought this book after hearing author Mem Fox read it at Book Expo America this year. She had the audience in stitches and in tears as she told the backstory for the book. Her only daughter’s child was born prematurely. The inspiration for the story came from a bedtime they had together, with her daughter singing the song her mother sang to her. The beautiful illustrations will make this lullaby, so rhythmic and soothing, a favorite.

    Such a sweet book
    I love this book. It is sweet and perfect for reading to a precious baby. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is that 2 of the pages were bent quite a bit.

  9. Zalea

    A Home Library Must-Have
    This is such a sweet book with relaxing words and endearing illustrations. My two and a half year old grandson has loved having this read to him at bedtime so much that he can “read” it aloud by himself too.

    Great gift!
    Cute baby book with sweet illustrations. Great gift for new parents!
