What did you like about the book? This Peter Rabbit lullaby book is a calming bedtime book that very young children will love. Written in rhyme, it is a sing-songy lullaby that shows all different animals settling down to bed. Everything about the book is calming, from the pastel colors of the illustrations to the pictures of beds and nests and burrows.
Anything you didn’t like about it? For children learning to read, it might be confusing as there are words written in cursive on each page. I don’t see the purpose of it, as there doesn’t seem to be a reason why some words are written in cursive and some aren’t.
To whom would you recommend this book? It is recommended for children ages 3 and up.
Who should buy this book? Public school libraries.
Where would you shelve it ? Children’s Books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes
