For my baby shower I asked all my friends to buy my baby their favourite book. I received this book and never had it as a child. As with other reviews I wasn't that taken with it but I have read it to my now 2 year old daughter most days since she was born and she adores it. I still see new things when I look at it which is wonderful...the mouse moves around! It is a fab way to learn vocabulary and is up there with each peach pear plum for us. I love this book and will buy it for every child that hasn't got it. I guarantee you will know it is a good present when you are thanked once the child talks and is always asking for goodnight moon!
