Book Review: The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton

the going to bed book

This board book is beautifully illustrated with lots of animals on every page, something that I’m sure lots of toddlers will like.

The story is about some animals on an ark (there’s only one of each animal though) preparing for bed. They take a bath, then change into pajamas, brush their teeth, exercise (right before bed?!) and go to sleep.

The words of the book are very thoughtfully selected, allowing for parents to teach opposites like big/small and prepositions like on top/beneath.

Someone on YouTube has converted the book into a lovely song! I picked up the song and we have loads of fun singing the book.
