7BF2CD73-031C-4027-B67F-4E5FA4BE5903I like this book because: I read it with my storytime gang not knowing how it would turn out having to share interaction with a board book with up to 10 kids! It went over splendidly, though  I opted out of having them each kiss the character good night! They loved it – even the 6 yr old joined in on the fun! A simple, adorable tickle of a book!
