A bedtime book for preschoolers.

Name of book:
Come by Chance  by Madeleine Winch


Where can I get it?

We like
A sweet book about a lonely woman who, on a walk, finds a rundown house in the country.  As winter nears she opens her home to a number of animals that seek shelter from the weather.  They spend a warm winter together and then all leave when the first blossoms of Spring arrive.  All except one… a cat who stays to keep her company.

It's a book about friendship and the joy someone can get out of giving to others. It's beautifully illustrated and can be read in under 5 minutes, making it a perfect bedtime story for 3 – 5 year olds.
