Such a beautiful story book. I read out the stories to my daughter every night and she used to feel calm before going to sleep. I myself enjoyed every story in this book. Simplicity is the key here. Looking forward to read more books by our beloved Sudhaji. Thank you for gifting us with such a beautiful piece of simple but adorable literature.

Read these to my granddaughter. Completely different from any other child grandparent book. Need to read all first (of course) as care is necessary in choice - some are more suitable for an older aged child.
