Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This bedtime routine offers textured objects of interest for the very young... If only preparing for rest was always this easy in real life.
—Kirkus Reviews
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
This adorable book about bedtime rituals helps tots to learn sequencing and attain a greater sense of independence around bedtime. And it's playful, too, with touch-and-feel illustrations sure to tickle your little one's fancy and fingers. The simple rhyme and cheery double-page spreads feature Noodle, a wide-eyed panda cub, taking a bath, brushing his teeth and choosing his favorite snuggly toy before popping into bed. Mama Panda is a calm presence throughout but Noodle clearly relishes his ability to do things by himself. Thankfully this title and others in the Noodle series come in a sturdy board-book format that can withstand the "tough love" your child will lavish upon it. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
Kirkus Reviews
This bedtime routine offers textured objects of interest for the very young. Panda Noodle prepares for sleep sans drama. He splashes in the tub and enjoys a final drink; he holds his beloved stuffed animal to lull him into slumber. Easily viewable touch-and-feel items offer a variety of sensations, from toothpaste's sticky gel to a toy's soft wool. His age is unclear; the picture of him on his back with bottle suggests infancy, though he's able to get himself into bed without much assistance and brushes teeth independently. Brief, repetitive text maintains an unwavering positivity, though the final remarks, made directly to readers, may be just wishful thinking. "Noodle loves to snuggle / with a soft, fluffy sheep. // And just like Noodle, / you love to sleep!" Bright, geometric shapes keep visual pacing brisk; Noodle's oversized head and wide eyes are a constant through the varied design to the final page, which features a mirror for audience perusal. Noodle Loves to Cuddle follows the same structure, as the youngster plays independently and then enjoys a satisfying hug with Mama. If only preparing for rest was always this easy in real life. (Board book. 1-3)
