Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Baby has finally drifted off to Dreamland and there's peace in the family at last. 

"Now don't make a peep...

The baby's finally asleep." 

 Can a large noisy family stay muted and retain that lovely sense of serenity?  

The floor creaks, Daddy's loud belly grumbles, Grammy is busy washing a dirty shirt, Pop Pop's red nose needs a good blow, and sister Shae's hair must be dried, just to name a few distractions.  The refrain of "Shhh! The baby's asleep!" reminds everyone to hush so not to wake the wee one up.  Does it work? 

Just when the family is all calm and settled in guess what happens?  Yep, Baby wakes up!   The superhero of the story is a great book for everyone to read together. Will sharing a story magically be a fix for the whole family brood and bring tranquility to their home once again? 

 This fun story will have kids giggling and the illustrations are priceless... colourful, kid-friendly and fun.  If families have a baby in their home they certainly can relate.  I love the book and highly recommend it!
