Overview

Princess Baby is back! This sparkly yet sturdy board book is perfect for sleepy little princesses everywhere.

It's bedtime, but Princess Baby isn't sleepy. "Time for bed," her parents call. "But I need one more minute, please," Princess Baby replies, again and again and again. After all, there is so much a princess baby needs to do. Pajamas need to be put on, toys need to be put away, the perfect book needs to be chosen, and her beloved subjects need to brush their teeth! It's a very busy time in Princess Baby's room. Young readers and listeners will want to climb into their own beds when our pint-sized heroine finally pulls up the covers and goes "night-night."

Editorial Reviews

For Princess Baby, the bedtime chore list is practically endless: 1. Put on pajamas. 2. Toys need to be put away. 3. The best picture book ever has to be chosen for reading. 4. Teeth must be brushed. 5. The blankets have to be arranged in just the right way. Young readers and their parents will instantly identify with this pre-Slumberland routine. We can't think of a more appropriate "night night" book.
Children's Literature - Ali Fell
This is a sweet story told in a sweet way in a few words. As Princess is asked by her parents if she has accomplished various ready-for-bed tasks, she answers yes as she performs the tasks for her stuffed toys rather than herself! Princess is a delightful little girl who radiates the love that she has received from her parents. The last picture, in particular, is a heart-warmer! This book is targeted to young children who appreciate story repetition. Fortunately, many parents will find that reading this story over and over is a pleasure and is just the right length for a short sleepy-time event. The writing is large and many young school age readers should be able to read the story to younger siblings. The illustrations are colorful, simple, large, and attractive. Perhaps best might be the moment when parents discover that their child is imitating the good pre-sleeping skills exhibited by Princess. Reviewer: Ali Fell

PreS-K

In this successor to Princess Baby (Random, 2008), the feisty, independent-minded heroine is asked various questions during her preparations for bedtime. "Princess Baby, did you pick up all your toys?" "Yes, I picked them up," she responds, and is shown cuddling all of her stuffed animals at once. Although Princess Baby protests that she is not tired, a satisfying conclusion shows her asleep on the floor after reading books to her stuffed animals and tucking them in. As in the earlier title, fuchsia and other rosy tones dominate the illustrations. Purchase if the first book has a following.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

From the Publisher
“As enticing as a glittery petticoat.”—Publishers Weekly

“The overall effect is eminently appealing to young readers and princess fans alike. This sparkly, lighthearted tale is bound to enchant hopeful young ladies-in-waiting.”—Kirkus Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
The Princess Baby is back! This time the cute story for sleepy little princesses is in board book format. A sparkly, sturdy board book with eleven double page spreads with one to two sentences on each. Pretty pastel colors of blue, pink, yellow, and green with rounded corners, the book is easily handled by infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. The story repetition allows young readers to join in with the story. Princess Baby has her favorite animal friends to which young readers will enjoy as well as relate. This is a good story to promote print motivation, vocabulary development, and retellings. A fun selection for sleepy, little princesses, which adult readers will also like. Keep this one handy for repeat reading. A good night to you all. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid; Ages 3 mo. to 3.

This is such a cute story. And it totally reminds me of my niece. I am sure that my daughter will be just like the charactor soon enough. It's already become a favorite bedtime story.

This book is an excellent example of Karen Katz's endearing stories. I have almost all of her books, but Princess Baby Night-Night is THE book that I read to my 21 month old daughter every night, even if we indulge her with other stories. Its become part of our bedtime routine...

I started buying my niece these books shortly after she was a year old beginning with Counting Kisses by Karen Katz. With her love of princesses, she absolutely loved the first book, Princess Baby. This book is a sequel to that one, and just as enchanting. Princess Baby, Night-Night, is a story about the Princess Baby getting ready for bed, as she brushes her teeth and her dolls and stuffed animals' teeth, cleans up her toys, etc..For those of us without children, this is complete explanation of why it takes so long to put one's children to bed. I would definitely recommend this book!

My little girl is convinced she is a princess, and while I didn't like the original book as much because she seemed whiny, this one is cute. Each page the mother or father (it's not identified as I remember) asks the little girl if she's doing one of the steps for going to bed, and each step she says yes because she's helping her toys get ready for bed. It's very cute and we had lots of fun reading and talking about it.
