    We received this book yesterday that I won on Facebook and I read it to my 4 year old last night before bed. Sally Simon Simmons is wonderful. My son and I were doing to deep breathes with her. Looking forward to a frustrasting moment to say,”Remember Sally and her Sandwich”. I will let you know how it goes! I am going to read it to my 2 and a half year old tonight. Thanks again!!!
