What did you like about the book? This is a book intended for new mothers to read to newborns. It is a gentle rhyming book that uses the word “blanket” over and over to describe the different places and things a baby might see, a blanket of grass, a blanket of flowers, etc. It is a calming book and one that new mothers will enjoy reading to newborns. The rhyming text has a soothing tone.
