The Lovereading4Kids comment

A big bear and a little bear are getting ready for bedtime – a process with lots of lovely stages. They wave goodbye to their snowman, hold hands for the walk home, smile, have a last play, tickle and giggle, before a hug and finally a good night kiss. In a few perfectly chosen words and warm, vibrant illustrations author and illustrator capture the love, joy and playfulness of the bedtime routine. No matter how tiring or difficult their day, this will leave both child and parent feeling happy and peaceful as they say goodnight. ~ Andrea Reece

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
