Oh my gosh! This book is so cute! Its blurb on the back cover – help your little one slip from a great day into a good night. It’s the perfect description!
In this story, a little girl had the best vacation day ever, and she’s too antsy to go to sleep. Her Mom talks her down from excitement – and into sleep with lines like . . . ‘Toes go to sleep. Toes for gripping flip flops on the way to the beach.’ Then mom asked what’s next. Our girl said, feet.
This is one of the most creative books I’ve ever seen. I wish there was an audio book! I’d buy it for the nights when I’m wound up and can’t sleep. My final comment – this story is sweet enough for moms, but sassy enough for kids. The perfect combination!
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
