Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A quiet depiction of self-reliant slumber": -Kirkus, 07/01/12
Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
It's time for bed, so let's get ready. Bring your bunny. Bring your teddy. Written in simple rhyming text and whimsically illustrated in beautiful colors, this book will surely be a favorite. A good-night rhyme based on bedtime routines lends itself to early and easy interactions. Babies and toddlers will enjoy this padded board book and the large illustrations of lovable and huggable toddlers for which the author is noted. Talk, touch and point. No need to follow the simple text as young children will easily take the lead as they themselves relate to the children and the routines in the story. Talk with children about the pages and soon they will respond with babbling, gibberish and giggles. A child friendly topic and an enjoyable way to share words and pictures with baby, toddler or preschooler. Read about the toddler duo in two other books by the author: I Love You Through and Through and How Do I Love You? Words, sounds, storybooks, songs and nursery rhymes are the building blocks of literacy. Read together every day. This will be a favorite. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid
Kirkus Reviews
An evening routine provides stability for two smiling siblings. The pair bathe together in the tub. Drying off with towels, they put on pajamas and share a nighttime story with their favorite stuffed animals before they pull the covers up over their noses. The tale highlights the interactions between sister and brother, exuding coziness as they finally relax. There's no adult physically depicted in the pictures, even when the two splash puddles of water on the floor. An adult presence is indicated in the lulling narration, though: "Snuggle the covers / and off with the light, // Dream little dreams, // I love you, good night." The youngsters demonstrate tremendous independence; they scrub themselves clean and open wide to brush their teeth. The clean layout provides, appropriately, few details; stitched hearts float in the background near their beds in a symbolic departure from the realism otherwise portrayed. The padded cover adds extra softness. A quiet depiction of self-reliant slumber. (Board book. 1-3)
