It's bedtime and Oliver should go to sleep. But there is so much Oliver has to tell his mother first - everything that happened that day, every little thing he noticed that day, all the books he has read, everything that he sees around him... And of course, that he loves her. A sweet and oh so recognizable bedtime story about the bedtime ritual (and postponing it). For children ages 4 and up. Guided Reading Level K.
