The Night Night Book Review

My boys love to read stories before they go to bed, and what better story to read than The Night Night Book, by Marianne Richmond. I loved her other book If I Could Keep You Little, so I knew that this book would be great too. Here is a brief synopsis:

Bestselling author Marianne Richmond, continuing in the vein of her other books such as If I Could Keep You Little, creates vibrant, eye-catching art and beautiful verses in The Night Night Book (Sourcebooks; ISBN: 978-1-9340-8920-4; BB $7.95; May 2011). This tender, evocative picture book brings the entire family together as the perfect story before bed.

Sure to become a new bedtime classic, this book takes readers on a tour of the house as everyone settles in. Whimsical artwork and comforting scenes show kids it's time to say goodnight. Filled with text and illustrations that exemplify Marianne's real insights into the human spirit, The Night Night Book is a must-have bedtime accessory for any parent.

The ideal way to wrap up a day with your child, The Night Night Book is an adorable bedtime story that helps kids and parents bid farewell to the day, settle in for the night, and rest up for a new tomorrow.

My thoughts: This is an adorable board book and a perfect way to end the day with my sons. Here are a few words from the book: "Comfy bed, all tucked in. Cozy blanket, toes to chin. Night night sky. Night night moon. Dear tomorrow, see you soon!" Although my oldest son is seven years old, this book is perfect for him to read on his own, since he is just starting to learn how to read. And while he is growing up so fast, he is still a little boy at heart who loves his blanket and his stuff animals. He also loves to play with his 1 year old cousin and this book would be perfect for him to read to her. I would definitely recommend this book to read to your child before they go to bed.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of the product.
