"A touching and familiar picture book about postponing the ritual of going to sleep." -- Children's and Teen Book Connections
It's bedtime, but there is so much Oliver has to tell his mother first - every little thing he noticed that day, the books he has read, what he sees around him... And of course, that he loves her.
A sweet and oh so recognizable bedtime story for children ages 4 and up.
