Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Are there any kids who do not try to stall bedtime no matter how tired they are? Some are more cooperative or have a routine that makes it a bit easier. In this book, Leo the pirate is supposed to get ready for bed. His teddy bear is also a supporting character. The board book has an interesting format—the inner die-cut pages in effect transfer the items from Leo to teddy. As the pages are turned , the text says goodnight, silver sword, goodnight, green bandanna and so on until the teddy bear is attired as a pirate and Leo is left in his underwear. The book offers an additional lesson: identifying colors and objects that are that color—silver coins, green frog, black tire and so on. There are items to point at and name and they are not the typical ones so there is an opportunity for some real vocabulary expansion. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

    A Great Book for Toddlers - Especially Boys!

    My son is 17 months old and this is his favorite book! The premise is that Leo is getting ready for bed and must take off his play pirate outfit. The right side of the page has Leo in his pirate outfit and then the left page has Teddy. When you turn each page, one part of the pirate outfit gets put on Teddy. It's a very fun and engaging concept and just an all around cute book. Each page also has tiny pictures that coincide with the color of clothing Leo is taking off. So on the page where Leo says, "Good night smelly white socks" there are tiny pictures of other white things that you can talk about with your toddler and have them point to.
