Sweet going to bed book that creates interaction as your child follows the instructions on each page and then flips the page to see the change. The illustrations are soothing and it's a great concept, but it's never caught on as a favorite at our house.

I absolutely love this bedtime book. I love the interactive elements of touching the book, closing your eyes, etc. to help make the "changes" in the illustrations on the next pages. So sweet to start with the sunset and go through the things that show it's time for bed in nature. Love the illustrations, too! One of my favorites.
