Bedtime & Dreams

Good Knight, Mustache Baby by Bridget Heos, Joy Ang (Illus.)

I love Mustache Baby! This series is my favorite to gift to new parents, because the stories are hilarious for adults, while kids adore Billy (aka Mustache Baby) — because what is funnier than a baby with a mustache? I loved that this adventure added a pink unicorn to Billy and Javier’s crew.
