Do you read at bedtime? What’s your little one’s favourite book to fall asleep to?
My toddler loves 'On The Night You Were Born'. We read it every night and she is convinced the moon in the story is her grandad! She's just received another Nancy Tillman book for her birthday so i'm hoping she will love that one just as much!

She is 3. I would say even babies can enjoy listening to the book & looking at the pictures.
