5.5 / 7.0

Sweet and calming, this book is perfect for reading together while snuggling before bed. When we’ve finished, my toddler likes to hear the story of the day she was born (usually multiple times). While its narrative style isn’t my favorite, it’s great for creating an opportunity to express my love for my rambunctious three-year-old.
