Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
6.0 / 7.0

A very fun story about a sheep trying to go to sleep! I love the humor in this book, and think it’s so fun for bedtime. This book has a great story and the illustrations are dreamy!

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.5 / 7.0

This is such a great book! The illustrations are hilarious (be sure to spot the frog on every page!) and I love how they tell at least half the story. The story is a great length for a board book—a little more meat than your couple word per page board book but you can still read it fast enough that munchkins don’t get bored before you’re ready to turn the page.
