Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children's author, songwriter, producer, and director.

More than 60 million of her books have been sold--"mostly to friends and family," she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced five albums of renegade children's music. Three of her five albums have been certified Gold [over 500,000 copies sold] and "Philadelphia Chickens," nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum [over 1 million copies sold.] Boynton has also directed six music videos of her songs, including the award-winning "One Shoe Blues" starring B B King.

I purchased it 12 years ago for my daughter (she still has it) and again this month for my 2-year old great niece.

This book makes for great bedtime reading and has help my daughter to go to sleep on many a night. Six cute little stories about bedtime and a nonsense song make up the contents which are illustrated by a whole bunch of Boynton animals. The contents are as follows:
Snoozers - A story of the Snoozers who can sleep anywhere and anytime (except bedtime).
I'm Not Tired - A little bear puts himself to sleep by fussing about not being tired.
The Big Yawn - Just what the title says. Beware.
Pajamas - Different animals like different types of pajamas. What kind of animal are you? My son is a piggy and my daughter is a moose (so am I).
Six Sleepy Sheep - A poem of the evening activities of the title characters as they get ready for sleep.
Night Sounds - All of the snores of the jungle as the animals sleep until...
Silly Lullaby - A really silly song.

I found this book in an airport on a week long trip my son was determined to spend awake, or that's how it seemed at bedtime. This book did the trick to get him to sleep without a fuss--both that night, and every "I'm not tired" night since then. Both the stories and the format are perfect for giving the little ones the illusion of control--they choose which stories to read from the "table of contents" tabs on the side, and in which order. The number of stories is just right to make kids feel like they've gotten you to keep reading a long time, even though the entire book only takes minutes to finish. Bravo to Boynton!

This is not just a favorite at bedtime, but all day long. My 13-month-old will bring it to me during the day and "throws" it at me until I read it. He especially loves the "snore" page --making the noises along with me.

Although we have a history of liking Boynton books, this was not very interesting for my child, age 2.5. This book has seven bedtime stories set up on two pages each. Each page spread is one story, somewhere between 16 and 20 lines of text. That's it, not much of a story. The rhymes are cute, but in two of the stories the rhyme seems very forced. The pictures, as always, are great. But the "stories" are more like nursery rhymes, an alternative to Mother Goose.
What do we like about it? The tab system that lets my child count as we go through the book. She also recognized a couple of characters from the Going to Bed Book, which I think is a better bedtime Boynton book, in the pajamas page.
I think if you've been reading more substantial story books, like Seuss or Sendak, or other classics, this is probably too elementary, unless you are still doing short books at night. Based on the reviews, I thought this was a sure hit; but I didn't realize what the actual content would be.

This was the first book my busy toddler really loved. Now she's 4 and can read it herself, and she still loves it. And what's more, I'm not even tired of it! The humor, the rhymes, and the dialogue that invites participation are all great. "Meatier" than the smaller Boynton board books, but still in just-right bite-sized chunks. In my opinion, the best Boynton's done (unless you count Rhinoceros Tap, which play to a somewhat older audience but is also a huge winner).

Boynton is always fresh and original. Her illustrations are cute and the animal characters are very expressive, for cartoons. The stories are each worth a smile, but the "Silly Song" (music included) on the last page is worth the price alone. (Sneakers in the freezer? An owl that whispers "moo"?) I think it's appropriate for ages higher than the typical "board book" crowd - my six year old is learning to play the silly song on the piano, and she often comes into the bedroom of her younger sister when I am reading it to her. Our whole family enjoys this book.

We bought this book for my son when he was 1 year old. He love it. He chatters along as we read it and the tabs on the pages make it easy for him to turn them. He love the colors, the cartoon animals and we often find this book in bed with him. Thanks again Sandra Boynton for another great book

We bought this book as a "before bedtime" wind-down read (parents of other 2 year olds will be familiar with this ploy.) It was read to our daughter numerous times cover-to-cover each night, but has now become a firm "first thing in the morning" read (whilst she's having her bottle.) She very quickly caught on to the little hiding teddy (and his "I'm not tired" refrain...funny about that...) Lots of fun for Boynton fans.
