Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Two rhyming board books that present familiar concepts. The first one introduces morning activities such as yawning, stretching, breakfast, getting dressed, and playtime. The second title looks at the various sleep outfits that the endearing creatures put on before joining a pajama party: "Pajammy to the left. Pajammy to the right.-Everybody's wearing them for dancing tonight." Everyone finally settles down, the lights are turned out, and wishes are shared for a hushed good night. Boynton's characters are as lovable as ever, all with expressions sure to win over toddlers.-Olga R.

This was for my niece who loves these books. She really enjoys them and soon will be reading them to her mother.

My daughter w as only 19 months when we got this. After reading this only once she started saying "Hey! Wake up!" Now (22 months) she flips thru and "reads" the story on her own. I recently saw a parent read this book at daycare on parents day and all of the kids really enjoyed yawning & stretching with the characters.

My dauther was 1 1/2 when she discovered this book and she fell in love with it. She has at least 50 books, but this is the one she wants. With all other books, she wanted us to name items on the pages and point out things, but this was the first one she wanted to actually READ (a big step). She has it memorized and acts out some of the parts (ie. yawn, stretch, wiggle your nose). We read this every day.

I bought this book for my 1 year old's birthday. He hasn't gotten a chance to see it yet because his 5 year old brother just loves it!!! He walks around reciting the book, especially 'broccoli stew....EW!!!' This book is just fantastic!! Absolutely recommended for any age.
