This is a great book for young readers. The message of prayers for others is wonderful. I started reading this book to my daughter when she was about 8 or 9 months old and she has always loved it...she's now 3 years old. She notices the similarities with our regular nightly routines and the closeness of family. This is definitely a book worth buying and then passing down through the ages.
