A good book can keep a child entertained for hours, but there aren't many that can actually make babies cry when they end.
That's exactly what happened to one little boy, as shown in an adorable video that has gone viral online.
He looks completely engrossed while his mother reads him the book 'I Am a Bunny', a classic children's book about the pattern of the seasons.
However, when the story ends and his mother closes the book, he immediately begins crying.
The only thing that seems to placate him is opening the book at the beginning and reading the story again.
It's heartening to see such a little child so completely in love with a book, but it must get a little wearing for his parents after a while.
