The Going to Bed Book: 09/26/08
Sandra Boynton has written and illustrated around thirty children's books in her career. The Going to Bed Book is set on an ark (no sign of Noah, though) and follows the animals' bed time routine.
The animals watch the sunset before deciding to go to bed. Along with the usual things of taking a bath and brushing teeth, there is also night time exercise under the light of the moon.
Of course the book has Boynton's unique illustrations. Harriet and Sean enjoy her silly looking animals doing the same sort of things they do before night (except for the moonlight exercises).
My daughter has this book. She really likes it and by now I have read it to her so many times she can pretty much recite it herself. Cute book!

We checked it out from the library so we only read it a few times. I'm sure that if we owned a copy, we'd be reading it on a regular basis as we do with the other Boynton books that we do have.

Going to bed upstairs...really cute. Your slogan "Puss Reboots" is a fun play on words. Made me laugh and I'm having fun on your site. Thanks for dropping by my site.

Thanks for stopping by. My cat's bad habit of rebooting my computer (when she was younger) inspired the punny name of the site.

I love all of Boynton's books. This one is a lot of fun to read to my little ones.
