Calming Book for Bedtime, But Also Funny and Engaging!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Going-To-Bed Book (Board book)
Sandra Boynton's colorful board book is a bedtime treat! An assortment of expressive animals gets ready for bed aboard a giant boat. Boynton amusingly shows then bathing, dressing, brushing teeth ("With some on top and some beneath, they brush and brush and brush their teeth."), and exercising together.
It closes with the animals settling down for the night: "They rock and rock and rock to sleep." Graced by Boynton's well-known illustrations and rhythmic, lullabye-like poetry, this is a great book for infants and toddlers alike. It's one of those books you'll keep long after the kid(s) grow up.

Just read this review from a while back, and it's true: I've kept it all this time,, even though my own "little one" is now in high school. These books wear very well with time, and I still remember Boynton's memorable lines and rhythms--this remains one of the very best!
