A beautiful way to say I love you at every bedtime.

Great addition to any baby’s library - it would make a great baby shower gift!" says Emily H. in her five-star review.

She gets excited too which is cute! It’s a simple, rhyming story with a nice forest theme. I would get another one if they made it.

One copy was for my kid’s 2nd grade classroom as a gift; all the kids signed it to the classroom library during their Wild Things Halloween party." says Jakub Oleksy in his online review.
