Children’s Corner: The Bedtime Book

9 Aug

Mama comes to tuck you in,

Pulls the covers to your chin,

Squeezes fingers, squeezes toes,

Lays a kiss upon your nose.

New York Times bestselling author Mary Engelbreit presents The Bedtime Book, a beautifully-illustrated picture book that pairs sleepy time text with Mary’s beloved, timeless art. From endearing poems and snuggly stories to sweet blessings and precious prayers, each page of The Bedtime Book features ways for you to read your little one to sleep. 

Mary Engelbreit grew up studying the illustrations in the vintage storybooks of her mother’s own childhood, and she developed a unique style that harkens back to those simpler times. Mary’s distinctive images have made her a celebrity to millions, who eagerly snap up gift items, calendars, books, fabrics, and more. Mary’s dearest wish has always been to illustrate for children. Her New York Times bestselling The Night Before Christmas is already part of the holiday tradition for families across the country.

 

My Impressions: 

The Bedtime Book illustrated by the very talented Mary Engelbreit will be your child’s go-to book when the sun goes down and sleep beckons. Filled with whimsically detailed illustrations of creatures of all types, the poems, prayers, and stories all focus on the process of bedtime. I loved this book! The pace is slow and easy; the pictures sure to engage your child’s imagination. My favorite in the collection is titled Counting Sheep, a story sure to induce giggles and smiles. Perfect for snuggle time with your child or grandchild! The Bedtime Book is a great edition to your family library or the just right gift for the special child in your life.

Highly Recommended.
