Opening with a child waking to the sun, a smile on her face, the gentle, spare text takes us through her exciting day, following each activity with joy. As the day is ending, readers see her back in her bed, after the routine bath and teeth cleaning. An adult says, ‘I’ve loved spending time with you today. I always will. Let’s take a moment to think about what made us smile today.’ The text ends with ‘Goodnight, little one,’ on a spread showing several bedrooms with small children tucked up in bed, with an adult or two giving them their goodnight words, readying them for sleep and sweet dreams. A delightful book, full of charm and just right for story time before settling for the night. The illustrations suggest pure delight in the world, and each spread rewards careful perusal. The book closes with Sleep Guidance, from baby sleep specialist, Andrea Grace.
