All time favorite children’s book I absolutely love the poems and illustrations in this book; they’re spellbinding. I’ve read most of the poems in this book at least 15 times to my kids. It’s my favorite book to read to them before bedtime if they’re not awake enough to listen to a longer story. I’ve given several copies of this book to friends with children as gifts.

Timeless poetry and illustrations I bought this as a gift for my child, but I want it for myself. 🙂 Adorable, whimsical illustrations are paired with poems, many of which you will recognize.

Huge Favorite Here! I absolutely love Gyo’s artwork in this book, and the selection of poems provided do not disappoint. I can’t count how many times I’ve read The Owl and the Pussycat or Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod. And the book has spent several nights in bed with my 4 year old, too.
