Editorial Reviews

Easing tired youngsters toward their appointed pillows can be a marathon project for parents, but this Sandra Boynton board book might help get them on the way. The humorous, rhymed story is short and pleasantly simple: Little piggy Pookie is tired, but he needs to be steered to bed, and by the end of the book, he's happily off to dreamland.
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Little Pookie, young anthropomorphic pig of other Boynton adventures, is told that it is time for bed. And so begins a typical bedtime dialog between mother and little one. Mother finds the hiding Pookie. He then chooses between two pairs of pajamas—half from each—brushes his teeth, hides under the covers for a surprise, and receives his three kisses goodnight. Brief rhymes, with parenthetical comments, lead to the peaceful tucking in. The final pages in this board book are filled with love, just right to read before sleep. The simplicity of the text is complemented by the deceptively simple colored drawings. Few props are needed to follow the actions shown sometimes in vignettes and in two double-page scenes. The focus is on the expressive faces and the obvious affection between mother and child. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

We had to buy the second book because the first one was worn out! My daughter (3) wants me to read this book to her every night.

I bought this book for my 18mo old daughter to add variety for bedtime readings. She loves it! It is simple, easy to follow along, and catchy. So far, she hasn't gotten tired of it. It's a great value and great for putting the little one to sleep.

My little one loves Pookie!She wants me to read it to her almost every night. It's a really funny going-to-bed book. And with the two other 'Pookie' books it's a nice collection.

This is a cute little story about avoiding bedtime. I really like Sandra Boynton's books. The illustrations are simple and the texts cute. Pookie can stir up little ones so you might want to have it first in your nightime reading pile.

Not my favorite Sandra Boynton book, but that being said....my two year old BEGS for it every night. The ending is so sweet where you are kissing your child and telling him/her how much you love him/her over and over.

Pookie's at it again in this latest from the series from Sandra Boynton. All the things you loved about Pookie before are still there, except this time, it's bedtime. A fun and warm bedtime story made even more dear with the help of Little Pookie.
