My 19th month old just loves this book. He can recall words from the images, such as "mush", "kittens", and "clock" and insists on reading it multiple times before bed. The repetition and simplicity of the story sounds lovely to the ear.
Still, one of my favorite books of all time! I loved to find the mouse. Now I get the pleasure of reading it to my daughter. I always ask her where the mouse is even though she's too young to grasp this concept yet. I can tell she loves the sleepy rhyming.
When my son was 1-2 yrs. old, he really enjoyed finding the mouse in the room each time we came to the sections with color. He also liked pointing out the balloon and whatever else we were reading about. He's the one that noticed that the balloon is not always next to the bed. =) Excellent book for baby's bedtime.
My son adores this book. It was read over and over again, so many times in fact that I don't even have to look at it anymore to recite the words! It would not have been something I would have purchased myself as it didn't seem that great to me, but my son's pediatrician gave it to him, and I was surprised at how much he loved it....and still does 2 years later!
We love this book. It's a classic. It's a great book for bedtime after you bathed your child and you're about to turn off the lights. There's something very soothing and peaceful about how the bunny in the book goes to sleep. I think it gives children the confidence to fall asleep and not be afraid of bad dreams.
