My 5 year old loves this book. It's fabulous for bed time. It has many scenes of characters drifting off to sleep with vivid descriptions of the process. It's a little like guided imagery for sleeping without being obviously so.

Absolutely adorable story, with absolutely vibrant illustrations. This is a sandman that is portrayed as a kindly helper to all children!
