The Going To Bed Book

Summary:

Join the animals as they prepare for bed: taking a bath, donning their pajamas, exercising and retiring to sleep.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The animals are cute. There's plenty of opportunity to point out the different characters and imitate their activities.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

S/He selected this as part of the first "gotta read every night" collection. Even today, we still get periodic requests…and a greater ability to imitate the activities (like brushing teeth).

Parent Reaction

Like all Boynton books, there's a rhythm that simultaneously keeps the story moving along and soothing at the same time. After nearly 2 years, this one hasn't gotten old.

Type of Book:
As with all Boynton books, there's a level of interactivity that engages toddlers in learning through doing and imitation.
Educational Themes:

The educational value is what you want it to be with this one: object identification, learning the going-to-bed process; or just a fun night-time read.

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
0 to 4
Age of child:
Started reading with a child 3 months old; still a hit at 2 years.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. With this one you'll more than recover the price in number of uses and all-around fun read.
