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.
