I have Good Night Maine and Good Night Lake, which I love reading to my 9 mo. old, but Good Night Boston isn't like those two. The illustrations are awful - very disappointing - like cheap Japanese animation. And it seems written by someone who doesn't actually know Boston - random things are capitalized, things that should be aren't, all tourist-y stuff, etc. Not sure why the people who make this series dropped the ball on this one - the others are very sentimental and cheerful and really make me think of Maine and the lake when I read them. Don't waste your money on this one.

This is the best bedtime book for our eight month old, it's short enough to keep his attention, with colorful pictures and with some of the main features that make Boston great! We've been reading it to him since he was first born and he has seemed to love it even then. We also carry it everywhere with us because if we are out at a restaurant or store, I know it will keep him entertained and busy. A great book for any parent from Boston, or even just visited Boston, I would definitely recommend to all Boston babies!

We have been reading my daughter this book to her for over a year now and it is one of her favorites, she still never gets enough of it and what we love is this book is nice and short (those nights when they are really tired and you need to quickly get through 1 book) but with so much going on the pages we can even stretch it out - where are the flowers, where are the birds, who's in the boat, how many runners, etc..

We live just outside of Boston so she finds it neet to read a book that shows places she has been to!

Format: Board book
This delightful little book introduces very young readers to famous landmarks and sites in Boston. It's a good teaching tool and anybody from or familiar with or just plain fond of the Boston area will love it too. Boston is the Cradle of U.S. History; it is a cultural, academic and historical mecca and this book does a nice job of introducing that to young readers!

An ideal companion book Good Night San Francisco (Good Night Our World series) because it is about the Gem of the West Coast and this one is about the Gem of the East Coast.

Bought this for a new little baby in Boston. It is a cute story. Her parents loved it and will hopefully love reading it to her!

I was so excited to find this book. My husband and I are both originally from Boston, and to be able to read a children's "Boston book" to our son is a great way to have him experience a little bit of our past home... and to familliarize him with some landmarks he will be seeing when we go to visit his grandparents. From the Charles to the Green Monster, the book and illustrations are great!

I have one of these on my coffee table in my den. I always keep a couple of books for adults and a few for the kids too. This has gone over big time in my home and I thought I would order a second one as one of the many baby shower gifts for my friends new grandson-to-be. He'll be arriving here in the next month or so and this will be lovely in his nursery. I wasn't parting with the edition at my home as my copy gets read quite frequently. THIS BOOK IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The wording is great and the artwork is precious.
