Happy Birthday! I tried singing it to the ABC song, without much luck… Still, Great Wishes for the Day!
Thank you, Sue! Since you said that, I tried it. It is surprisingly difficult to try to sing those words to that song – they are so ingrained the traditional way! I’ll keep practicing! 🤣
Happy Book Birthday! This book looks like so much fun!
Thank you so much, Rose! I’m glad it looks fun! We had fun creating it!
Happy book birthday! I look forward to reading it!
Thank you so much, Kim! I hope you like it!!!
Happy book birthday to ALPHABEDTIME!!! And congrats on the high praise from Kirkus Reviews, which included: “The rhyming text bounces along, an easy read-aloud, with rich vocabulary like impish, jazzy, and scramble making for a fun, silly, relatable read with detailed, appealing illustrations.” Can’t wait to read your alpha baby:-)
Thank you so much, Patricia! And you even read the Kirkus review 😊❤️ I hope you love my alphababy! 😊
HUGE CONGRATS!!! I love, love this! Happy Book Birthday!! I can hardly wait to read it.
HUGE THANK YOU, Deb! Thank you so much! I hope you like it when you get to read it!
Super congrats to you!! You must be on Cloud Nine!
I AM! 😊😊😊 Thank you so much, Phyllis! And for all you did pre-launch to help our little book make a good entrance! ❤️
Just submitted a review on Amazon! They say it will take a couple of days to show up. 🙂
Oh my gosh! That was so nice of you! I will go and look…even if they said a few days 🤣
It’s truly a pleasure :)!

Happy birthday Alphabedtime! Looks like a great blog tour;)
Thank you, Lauri!!! 😊
Congratulations, Susanna! I got my copy in the mail yesterday– so bouncy and fun! I know I’ll be rereading it a lot with my little ones. They chimed in immediately on the pages with the whole alphabet. I’ll be leaving my reviews this week.
Thank you so much, Sarah! For the congrats, and for ordering, and for reviews, and for the kind words about the book!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Congratulations, Susanna, on making another beautiful (and fun) book! Those little alphabits should be partying all night long—er, going to bed. Yes, going to bed so you can party all night long, LOL. Cheers! And have a great time sharing it with the kiddos!
Thank you, Jilanne! You know, little Alphabits have a way of NOT going to bed when they’re supposed to! What is WITH that???!!! 🤣 I think we will ALL party all night long 😊😊😊
Thrilled that your latest book is out in the world! It’s the perfect book for the new baby in our family.
Oh my goodness! What an honor to be a new baby book! Thank you, Claire!
YAHOO! Mine arrived today at our local indie bookstore!!! I’m be arriving there tomorrow to pick it up!! CONGRATS!
Oh, thank you so much, Karen! I hope you like it! Let me know if you want me to send a signed book plate!
I’d love a book plate! Thanks!
Susanna, I love your new book Alphabedtime. I enjoyed being introduced to all the letters as the birthday of Alphabedtime got closer. If I were still teaching, your book would become the Kids’ favorite book.
Thank you so much for all your kind words, Janet! They mean so much!
