What we thought:
I absolutely love this book, and so does my baby!  "Switching on the Moon" is beautifully put together with three sections throughout the book as follows *Going to Bed  *Sweet Dreams  and *In the Night.  My daughter loves to be read to so this book is perfect for us her favorite poem so far is her favorite is "Bedtime Teeth,"  she can definitely relate to this, understand it and she loves brushing her teeth plus the motions I make along with it help too! 

 Another favorite is "Snuggles" we talk about snuggling before we go to bed and she thinks it's funny!  We adore this book and it's also a great gift!  I wish I would have received this earlier as a baby shower gift!  Sometimes poems and books get left out and this is great option for a gift.  I also have to add that I feel so much bonding while reading this book to Princess!  "Switching on the Moon" a definite must have!
