Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My 2 y.o. likes me to read this over and over. It is very short and easy to comprehend even though "night whispers" are not in her vocabulary. It is especially good for us because my daughter only wants me to put her to bed or greet her in the night when she wakes up - so if your child has a male parent that she resists as a caretaker at night this book gives a sweet example of a Dad comforting his child when he can't sleep. And I highly recommend that non-Black parents add as many books with African-American main characters as they can to start countering racism early by representing normal, healthy images and stories like this one!
