Overview

Boynton is back! Joining Barnyard Dance! and Birthday Monsters!, here is Pajama Time! a good-night book with the irrepressible language, the inimitable illustrations, the irresistible cast of characters only Sandra Boynton could create.

A jump-roping chicken and a pig on a swing. A Scottie in plaid pajamas and an elephant in a fuzzy one-piece with feet. And in sing-along nuttiness reminiscent of Barnyard Dance!, it's time to head to bed-to the beat: Pajammy to the left. Pajammy to the right. Jamma jamma jamma jamma P!J! Everybody's wearing them for dancing tonight. Jamma jamma jamma jamma P!J!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Who can resist the humor of Boynton's illustrations—it really does not matter too much that the text is a bit silly, the pictures are what carry this board book. The die cut cover has a crescent moon shape set against a black background to simulate nighttime. Open it up and we see a cat, pig, chicken, and floppy eared dog, all wearing pajamas. The pictures show that nighttime is approaching, and everyone is getting ready for bed. Some pajamas are red others blue, some are old some are new, but whatever the style or color, it is pajama time. All the dancing may make it hard for little ones to settle down and go to sleep, but in the end, the pajama wearers are all tucked into bed where "You can have a party in your dreams…" and little ones are urged to sleep tight. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
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.

I love to read this to my daughter at bedtime. She loves to see the different animals and the pajamas they wear. Our whole family knows it by heart and often "sing" it when getting my daughter in her p.j.s

Sandra Boynton has quite a collection of wonderful children's books, but this one is definitely one of her best. Of course, it's most effective at bedtime, so get ready for a soundly sleeping child. Rhythm and rhyme galore makes this one fun story. Her illustrations are first-rate (and adorable).

This is a great book for toddlers as they prepare for bedtime. It's not too long, very colorful and turning the pages is easy for little fingers.

My 9 month old adores this book. The rhymes are great and the illustrations are wonderful. This is the best of the Boynton books so far.

A perfect book to have handy while getting dressed for bed. It gets my daughter to sit still and enjoy the process. She even dances to the sing-song words of the story.

My 3-year old loves this book, as well as all the other Boynton books. We start singing the PJ song as she gets ready for bed.

My seven month old son gets so excited when he sees the cover of Pajama Time. When I start reading the sing-songy text, his legs start kicking and he gets a huge smile on his face. We read this book multiple times a day. I have given Pajama Time as a gift to all of my friends with children.

I read this book to my son before bed and nap. Some of the verses we even dance to and he thinks it's silly. The ending has the perfect calm to relax your kiddo before sleeping.

When I went to wake up my three year old grandson this past Saturday morning, through sleep eyes he pointed to the Pajama Time book that was on the floor next to his bed. He said 'Mommy reads that to me. Let's read it again.' So, as I read the book to him he knew the lines and even had his own 'moves' to the left and to the right. All of my 7 grandchildren love this series.

My 2 year old loves this book. We read it for the first time last night and he wanted to read it over and over again.

I got this book when my daughter 'who is now 8' was born. I about read the cover off she loved it so much. I now have a one year old son and brought this book out to read to him. My daughter came into the room the first night and started to saying the lines from memory and finished the book with us. She still had the lines memorized from when she was young! My son has to have Pajama Time read to him every night!
