‘‘Well,’ wondered Daddy, ‘shall I tell you about a day when there were no scary things? A day so happy that if you think of it tonight, only sweet dreams will come.’ ‘What day was that, Daddy?’ asked Button. ‘The day you were born…’
Sometimes, at bedtime, Button worries about having bad dreams, but Daddy always knows just what to do. This heart-warming book celebrates the joy of parenthood and the special bond between fathers and their children.
‘This book is beautifully illustrated ... the whole story is charming and reassuring.
Young children liked seeing the relative sizes of Button when newly born and now,
contrasted with the huge size of the adult bears. [They] liked the idea that the day
of their birth was special and happy… [and] loved the endpapers which feature the
flowers, plants, insects and snails seen in the illustrations.’ - School Librarian Winter 2009
‘The real joy is the small creatures, like bees, frogs and butterflies dotted around the beautiful scenery. They add to the mood of two glorious days and make Just Like Tonight a book to re-read and savour… great for a relaxing, love-filled read just before bedtime.” - The Bookbag
