My Review

A perfect bedtime story, well written in rhyme with colorful illustrations, especially the caterpillar pickle. We see a tender, loving relationship between a mother and her son Ralphie who has trouble sleeping. The two of them work on a series of solutions from gorilla hugs to polar bear cuddles. If you are looking for an exciting new approach to your repetitive bedtime ritual and a release from the cares of the day and for little fears to melt away, I highly recommend this wonderful book. It is a heart treasure, for sure and one of lasting value. I am so grateful to have this book on the eve of my grandson's 4th birthday because he always says, " but YaYa, I'm not sleepy!"

***** stars!
