Praise for If I Could Keep You Little… and The Night Night Book
“Marianne Richmond has crafted another adorable book that parents, grandparents, and even not-so-small children are sure to enjoy.”—Books for Boys
“Richmond not only wrote the simple, rhythmic text—you can practically hear a toddler repeating each line in your mind’s ear—but also created the bright, energetic, collage-style illustrations. It’s as fun to look at as it is to read, and would make a wonderful present for any new parent or parent-to-be.”—The Oregonian
