I never write reviews, but thought this one was worth it. We found Sleepy Time Olie on grandma's shelf over Christmas and it has become one of our favorite books. It's a sweet story with a lot of rhyming that make it fun for early readers. My girls (3 and 5) like that there is a "super silly ray" and a "hammer nicknamed phyllis"...
