“My two year old boy adores your book. ‘It’s time for bed, but before you go there’s something I really want you to know’ has become one of the favorite lines in our house. He runs to get the book off the shelf and he almost recites it now. He examines each page in detail each night and asks lots of ‘what’s that?’. We have our own way of reading it – we read the ‘I love you so much’ pages before bedtime and ‘if he looks for it during the day’ we read the other pages; so he gets two stories from it. Thank you for such a lovely book”.

“Thank you for writing this lovely book that we can share with our children, it is not everyone who can find the words that can capture children’s imaginations in this loving way, so thanks again for that gift.

Just a quick e-mail to let you know how much your book has moved me! I read it to my 3-year-old boy every night. He loves it!
