And now for a wonderful book for the younger readers for Easter!

Like most children, Sami puts off going to bed for as long as possible. But reading a story about Little Bear's bedtime ritual inspires Sammy, just as the young reader will be inspired by this soothing story and clever book-within-a-book concept. A bedtime book that both parent and child will relish reading one more time, Don't Turn the Page! features a surprise ending that reinforces the sense that it's bedtime for everyone.

This is a wonderfully illustrated book, as you can see, that will draw in young readers and preschoolers alike! Miss Grace loved the concept of reading the same book that she was reading! We could both relate at not wanting a story to end, but to delay going to bed! This is an adorable book, and perfect for gift giving to younger children at any occasion! We highly recommend it!
