I have never written a book review before but I love this book so much I want to spread the word. This is the best read aloud book I have found. The story is a sweet (not syrupy) one of friendship, but mainly the rhymes are beautifully written in a roll of your tounge way which is fun to read and rhythmical, lulls a child to sleep. We read it every night...twice. It never fails, my 2 year old is asleep halfway thru the second time. I bought this book as a favor for my son's 3rd birthday party, and often buy it for birthsday presents.

I bought this book based on another recommendation and I am so glad I did. My 2-year-old son absolutely loves this book. The way it flows is so soothing and it has a wonderful lesson as well. I highly recommend this book!
