This is a wonderful picture books for kids. It is simple, the words are geared for the youngest child. Yet, it is so powerful a message for kids.
In this simple poem, a mother describes the ten things she loves about her young child. From his scaly elbows and knees all the way to his twitchy tail, every inch of this little monster is admired and appreciated.
Gentle, humorous illustrations show how one tired parent decides to participate in a bit of rowdy lay at bedtime, with the result being a happily tired youngster and a mother who is even more in love with her child than she was at the beginning of the book.
This is a wonderful story that is hilarious yet well done. What parent can’t relate to being tired and having nothing much left for their children, especially at bedtime. This book may just do the trick to put children to sleep.
