5.0 out of 5 stars A great favourite 14 Nov 2004
Format:Board book
This was the first item I ever bought from Amazon, when my daughter was a baby. She's now nearly five and still loves reading this book nearly every night. Its about a boat full of animals and their nightly routine. Its rhyming style and engaging characters have really captivated the family, we all know it by heart! I would definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars great 25 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Board book
Me and my husband have been reading this book to my 5 month old daughter ever since the day she came home from the hospital, she just loves the book so much. We made the mistake of leaving it at grandmas house,(who lives out of state) and that night she wouldnt go to sleep, so we had to go out the next morning and barrow my sisters book that she bought for her children, so she would go to sleep !!! She loves the book soooo much, and if you want a great bed time story, pick this one !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best bedtime book I know.... 26 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Board book
A motley crew of animals on an ark get ready for bed. Despite being entertaining for the parent to read, the rhythm of the text is calming, and by the last verse, where the animals on the boat 'rock and rock and rock to sleep', my little one is nodding too. We love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very rhythmic 13 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Format:Board book
My son and I started reading this when he was eight months old. It is just short enough to keep his attention span interested, but the rhyme helps him learn to love his books. (Also short enought to memorize in case you lose it for a day under the couch!) A must for baby's bedtime routine.

We have been reading this book every night for the last year as our 21 month old son goes to bed. He continues to enjoy the pictures and act out the story. This includes brushing teath, putting on PJs and climbing into bed. The final stage of turning out the light makes a wonderful end for a day.

Our only moment of panic caused by the book was when we forgot it when we left on vacation. Fortunatly we know it by heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big hit TWICE now! 28 Nov 2010
Format:Board book
We got this book when our son was born nearly six years ago, and read it to him every night the first 2+ years. Even though he grew into much older books by that point, we still finished with this one every night because he loved it so much.

Our daughter is now 7 months old and loves it equally as much as her big brother. Every night a massive smile breaks out on her face when she sees the front cover, and she loves trying to 'grab' the pictures. The cutest part, though, is her big brother reading the book to her, word perfect, still happy to have the story himself even now.

I buy this for all my new mommy friends. It's sweet, it's lovely, it's cute, it's just plain wonderful. I can't sing its praises highly enough!
