The Lovereading4Kids comment

From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, comes a classic baby bedtime book. Baby, baby soft and sweet, almost good enough to eat! It's night-night time so come with me, and hear my bedtime recipe. A classic baby bedtime book with a perfect lullaby ending.

With its tender, gently soporific rhyming text and pictures so beautifully in tune, I can imagine this becoming a bedtime favourite with many a toddler. Red Reading Hub The perfect bedtime story... gentle and sweet. Guardian

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
