Lovely calm colours and artwork. Fantastic concept. I loved how calm and peaceful it made us all feel at bedtime. I think it’s a nice image on the front cover that matches the title, I don’t know if the cover artwork would’ve grabbed my attention if I saw it in a bookshop. I enjoyed reading this to my twins as lots of nice things to think and talk about with the children. My twins enjoyed reading this book as they enjoy learning about nature. I thought the illustrations were great and all had a calming feel. The illustrations certainly helped explain the story. This is a lovely educational book. It was different to the usual bedtime books and made us talk about new subjects. I liked how it made us think rather than just listen. Children could drift off to sleep thinking about what they’d just discussed. I read this every bight to the twins during the first week as it prompted more subjects for us to talk and think about. A really good quality book. Definitely good value for money. I really liked the fact it’s not a story, it’s thought- provoking and teaches the child to relax and be mindful to the planet and things around them. The twins liked the questions the book prompted me to ask about each page. I would buy this book. I would also recommend for all the reasons above. A fantastic book that makes the child mindful of others. Helen Anslow – Isla & Harrison 3 Years

The book looked different, the images were very ‘arty’ and modern. Loved the message it was putting across. I did like the design, although it didn’t quite capture my son’s attention due to the more modern images. I did enjoy reading this to Alfie and it was lovely to get the message across. When reading this book to Alfie he was listening carefully and the words captured his attention. I liked the illustrations, but I thought they were too old for my son. He asked on a couple of occasions what the pictures were. The illustrations were ‘arty’ and not clear enough for a 3 year old to understand. This is definitely a good educational book. My son did enjoy this book as it was different, and very heart warming. I would read this to Alfie at bedtime, every 3-4 days since we have had it. The quality of this book is excellent. The book was great value for money. I really loved the message it was putting across. My son enjoyed the discussions we were able to have about the message of the book. I would buy this book.  I would recommend as it had a lovely heart warming message. Great book and concept, but the illustrations were a little old for my son. My son loved this new book and it captured his attention from start to finish. He found the message okay, but the illustrations he asked me to confirm to him, as they weren’t clear.

Nice book with interesting illustrations. I like the idea that the book is repetitive and encouraging children to settle down ready for bed. I felt the design was very inviting and made me want to read it. I enjoyed reading it to my daughter, but found that some of the words were too complicated for younger children. My daughter liked looking at the pictures and describing what was in each one. The illustrations were simple but very effective. I felt the illustrations were effective alongside the story. This is a good educational book and we learned more about the world and things around us. She enjoyed the repetitive nature of the book but was not sure about some of the pictures and asked me to skip some of the pages. I would read this to her every couple of nights. The book itself was of good quality and had a nice feel to it. It is quite expensive for a children’s book, but the fact it is designed to be read on a regular basis helps to offset this.  I liked the way in which it encouraged relaxation at bedtime. She liked the way that the phrases repeat themselves and enjoyed joining in with this. I would buy this book, but I would maybe wait until a slightly older age 4 or 5 to fully understand the concept of the book. I would recommend as it is a nice story to share at bedtime and the themes are educational and conducive to sleep. I really enjoyed the book, but there were certain parts my daughter was not so keen on. I will continue to read it as she grows older and hope that she grasps more of the concepts. Overall it was enjoyable to test the book and we enjoy reading and learning together. Vicky Bantock – Phoebe 3 Years
