What did you like about the book?   This is a sweet bedtime story for babies.  The cover and all of the  pages have a cutout star shape through which a glittery yellow star can be viewed.  Each page has a short rhyme about on of the cuddly toy animals  as they get ready for bed.  “Twinkle, twinkle, little bears, Time to climb the sleepy stairs;” “Story time comes to a close/As sleepy Penguin starts to doze.”  Children will enjoy the pastel colored illustrations of the happy animals.  Each bedtime ritual has a rhyme until finally all the animals are tucked in bed and sleeping.  “Twinkle, twinkle, little one. Snuggle up – now day is done.”  A nice addition to bedtime stories.
