"I believe in the power of the do-over." I love this. You've got a poem sparking there, I think. :)

Maggie,

I just pre-ordered your book and love its origin story. It occurred to me after reading what you wrote that sometime a traumatic death/life event or a slow death (Alzheimer's) can also take away or recede all the happy memories. Your honesty and words are always such a gift.

Thank you so much for writing this book that will calm and delight so many babes, parents and nighttime story tellers, Maggie.

Congratulations and good luck with your book Maggie! Thank you so much for sharing about bedtime..your experience and methods. The illustration you shared is very beautiful. I really appreciated a list of children's books you shared recently- I selected three. I especially loved

'In Every Life,' by Marla. Frazee-so I had to keep that one for me, but gave two others to nephews and neices.

Can’t wait to read this! I spent nine months last year working on a children’s book and I can’t wait to hear more about yours and also to read it!!

I wish I had something like this to read to my children when they were small. It would have been cozy and comforting for all of us! Also, love the illustrator! Such a cozy style.

Cannot wait to read this pretty book. Reading books at bedtime has always been close to magical for me and mine, and always has been. It is a time for connection like no other.

Oh, Maggie Smith! My signed copy of this book arrived. I read it aloud - I pretended a soft and cuddlesome three year old perched in my lap, and I read it aloud. Like “Good Night Moon,” this book will soothe the minds and hearts of little guys for years to come. You wrote a masterpiece, and I thank you, Maggie Smith. Brava!
