Illustrated By: Jess Mikhail

It is after bedtime and Small isn’t asleep yet, when Big comes in to take a moment to share with the child that should be sleeping.

This book leapt straight to the top of my highest recommends pile. Firstly Andreae wrote it and has such an excellent way with text (such a great track record as well). Michael’s illustrations are simply adorable. I could share stanza after stanza of these heartfelt words that almost bought a tear to my eye. As a parent you totally feel the same way Big does. Because I can’t not share something with you:

It’s the only sure way to be happy

The only sure way to be free

Believe in yourself and believe in your dreams

And you’ll be what you dream you can be.
