The sun is setting and Little Owl’s night is just beginning. So many of the other forest animals are heading off to bed and bear is already asleep snoring in his den.
What I love about this book are the illustrations and all of the great words: waddle, gnawed, hovered, gazing, rustling, gliding…all of these words work their way into our children’s vocabulary when we read them quality children’s literature.
I know it seems like a weird time to be blogging about Christmas books, but now might actually be a great time to check out Christmas books from the library because everyone is done with them and you can pick whichever books you want, not whichever books are left.
Also, there was a time in our house where all our youngest wanted to read was Halloween books. We must have read Halloween books for a year. I am pretty sure that we checked out every Halloween book our library had to offer.
Anyways, I love this book. (I know, I always say that, but if I didn’t love it I wouldn’t be telling you all about it.) I love the illustrations and I love how it calls itself to be read in a quiet voice…perfect for bedtime reading, perfect of naptime reading. Shhhhhhh…..
I LOVE the illustrations in this book! They are done with cut paper, cloth, string and colored pencil. I also love the verbs the author uses in this book..a great way to build vocabulary while we are reading to our kids. Lastly, this is a super cute story of a little ninja who is on a mission while he is supposed to be in bed.
A little girl explores her world on a summer day leading into night. She catches butterflies, drinks lemonade, has a picnic in the park and listens to an owl hooting outside her window. This is exactly the type of book I would have chosen for my boys when they were young. Why? Not only is it a cute book with lovely illustrations, but it rhymes, which is an important element in stories for children who are pre-readers.
Since it has been raining NON STOP here for days, I thought this might be the perfect book to review today. This is the story of what went on at night on Noah’s ark. Naamah, Noah’s wife, would go from animal to animal and check on them and sing them to sleep until she, too, finally succumbed to the darkness and fell asleep next to Noah.
Little Charlie is exhausted. He has been helping Mama all day long. Some of his helping wasn’t actually very helpful, but he was trying. At the end of the day, after all of that helping, it’s time to go to bed and Little Charlie is more than happy to help Mama some more, by getting ready for bed and sleeping all night long.
Cornelius has put his toys away, brushed his teeth, fed his fish, put on his PJs and picked out a book and he still isn’t ready for bed. There is only one thing missing…a HUG! This is a short and sweet book with bright illustrations and would be a perfect bedtime story for the little one you tuck into bed each night.
Wow! I LOVE this book. First of all, the illustrations are PHENOMENAL!!! This is one of the most gorgeous books I have read in a very long time. This is a great bedtime book as birds, frogs, cows, tigers and other furry creatures settle their own little ones in for the night. This book would also make a great gift for a new parent…a great baby shower gift perhaps.
All of the things a child could kiss…a pig? A skunk? A mop? A snake? A bird? A mouse? Your little one will love all of the animals in this book and also get a chuckle from some of the illustrations. In the end, the little boy kisses his daddy goodnight which is a way better thing to kiss than a mop. A very cute rhyming story with a sweet ending.
