"Gerbs in the House: The Dilly Dally Bedtime Routine is wonderful! It combines an excellent story with top-rate rhyming verses and hilariously whimsical imagery. This is a tale that is sure to delight both adults and children and will make an especially fun ‘read aloud’ story.”
-Meagan Meehan, children's author

"Five stars! This book is incredible. My boys loved the pictures of the gerbils in the different scenes. I had to stop a couple times because they were laughing so hard. As a parent I can relate to the subject material. I found myself nodding along with the story. I can see this being a very common bedtime story. A definite must read if you have young kids!”

"My daughter not only loved the book but she also loved the photographed images of the gerbils in the dollhouse mixed in with the illustrations. The combination artwork and photographs of real life gerbils in this book was new for my kids and I.”
