What did you like about the book? This little board book is brightly colored and invites little hands to turn the pages. Written in rhyme, we go from sunrise to moonrise, with animals waking up and greeting the day. As the day progresses, we start to see the daytime animals sleep and the nocturnal animals waking up to greet their day. The rhyme is simple and the pictures are child friendly, making the book a great pick for a very young toddler.
