Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This slight volume breaks down bedtime preparation into its components, from putting away toys and brushing teeth to turning on the nightlight. Warnick (illustrator of Ride the Wind: Airborne Journeys of Animals and Plants) presents less a story than an itemized list: "Bring your teddy bear/ and your special blanket/ and your favorite book." Each soft, straightforward watercolor presents a portrait of a single object?toilet paper roll, sink, pillow?against a plain white background. The final picture introduces a child, sleeping, and gathers several of the aforementioned items. This paper-over-board book succeeds in evoking the comfort of nighttime rituals and the familiar, solid presence of its necessary props. But although toddlers will recognize this catalogue of objects, some may wish for a story line. Ages 1-3.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Familiar bedtime rituals of putting away toys, using the potty chair, bathing and brushing teeth, and finally snuggling into bed with a teddy bear and a favorite book are neatly chronicled in this simple picture book. The pages are clean and uncluttered, with large, clear watercolor illustrations that show each item mentioned in the text-a toy box, a bathtub, a pair of slippers. A child appears in the last painting tucked neatly into bed. Soft shades of blue, green, and brown are set off by plenty of white space. A gentle good-night treat.

Format: Hardcover
My eighteen-month-old daughter loves this book! The large, colorful illustrations of household objects are beautifully done, and they completely capture her attention. The text is simple and to-the-point. This is a terrific bedtime book for toddlers and young pre-schoolers. Probably not for most children over the age of four or five.
