it is not time for the lights to go out until this book has been read! great book, we all know it by heart now. we buy these 10 at a time to give to new parents, must have...
Go to Sleep, Russell the Sheep
Great For Younger Toddlers Too!
A lot of the reviewers mention that the book is popular with the 3+ crowd. I just wanted to mention that my 15 month old enjoys it too. He'll ask for it by name and request multiple readings at bedtime. There are enough words that reading the book over and over again isn't maddening for the parent but not so many that a small toddler's attention will wander. As an added bonus, we get to count ...
Practical suggestions for simplfying the chaos
Seeing the cover of this book I was apprehensive. Another book on how beautiful it is to have children, with little substantial help, I thought. Well it is about the beauty and a lot lot more. A comparitively short book, each paragraph has practical, sage advice on a host of things one would only learn after years of experience. Written by the daughter of a midwife, the book has years of ...
Diane Johnston Hamm
Such a cute little book. We ordered one and gave it for a gift , had to get another one to keep. I'm a librarian and I ordered copies for the library as well.
Sleep Tight! (Sesame Street)
This books is REALLY cute and after reading it a million times for several months to my son, we took a break from it for a few months and he still remembers to say to me, "Sleep tight" from the book. I love reading about how the different characters sleep and their routines before they go to bed. Elmo is incredibly sweet for young children to read; somehow they are drawn to his cuteness, ...
Baby Danced the Polka (Ala Notable Children's Books. Younger Readers (Awards))
My 2 year old is obsessed
I bought this for my 2-year-old daughter and newborn. The 2-year-old has asked us to read it to her about 100 times since we received it the other day. She has already memorized large parts of the text, because the rhythm, rhyme, and repetition of certain phrases flow so well. I recommend this book for any young children. They will likely love the rhythm of it, as well as the inclusion of a baby ...
Sleep and Dream of Happy Things (Yo Gabba Gabba!)
Just like the TV show.
This is very reminiscent of the episode with the same song in it. My 2 year old loves it and wants to read it every night. For some reason he has been waking up in the middle of the night here and there just crying. I don't know if he had a nightmare or something but I just tell him to "dream of happy things" like Muno and he'll feel better.
Itsy Bitsy Yoga: Poses to Help Your Baby Sleep Longer, Digest Better, and Grow Stronger
My baby and I love this book!
We have had hours of enjoyment doing the movements and sequenses. You don't have to be a yoga expert to have a wonderful time with your baby. My guy is 4 months now and we haven't experienced any difficulty with constipation or gas. He discovered his feet quite early and loves to play with them. It is a great book for anyone looking for fun and wellbeing for them and their baby!
Wynken Blynken And Nod
Eugene W. Field
Perfect Picture Book of Field's Classic!
This is an ideal version of Field's classic poem for little ones who adore books with animals. Wynken, Blinken, and Nod are portrayed as bunnies clad in sailor-suits. The pictures are as dreamy as the poem and take us into their sleepy world. These drowsy, drifting bunnies end up in a little girl's room and leave behind some sleepy dust (stars) and she slumbers peacefully. If you absolutely ...
Going to Sleep on the Farm
Wendy Cheyette Lewison
One of my favorites
This book is beautiful in every way. The appealing, rhyming words and the amazing illustrations made this a favorite when my children were young. Now I love to give it as a gift at baby showers. It is apparently out of print, but if you can get a copy it's well worth it. LOVE this book!
Sam Sheep Can't Sleep (Easy Words to Read)
learn to read
I have a 6 year old who is beginning to read. The books she brings home from school have sentences that repeat along with difficult words that she figures out through picture clues. I am sure that this helps her learn to read, but I also realize that she simply memorizes the repetitive sentences. These books use words with the same phonemes (like "oo" and "ay") along with mostly simple words ...
That Baby Woke Me Up, AGAIN
That Baby Woke Me Up Again
This charming and delightful story tells of a common occurance in multi-children households. The whole family is involved with new siblings' night-time needs. The rhyming and happy text and matching illustrations tell the story in a way that will keep children reading over and over.
Good Night, Sleep Tight, Little Bunnies
Love this book!
My daughter (2.5) and I fell in love with this book the first time we read it. I love that all the baby animals sleep with mommy or daddy. This book makes me feel all warm and fuzzy every time I read it. The illustrations are very sweet.
Orchard Books (NY)
Don't believe Horn Books
This book is a WONDERFUL bedtime book. One of the best around. The reviewer from Horn Books (who said that the book has badly rhymed verse) clearly has no appreciation for any but the most trivial and obvious rhymes (e.g. night and light). It's all in how you read it. In a British/Canadian vernacular (the author is from Canada), "green" and "again" nearly rhyme in "engines roar, light ...
A Book of Sleep
Il Sung Na
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Review from www.firrkids.com
Every once in awhile, along comes a picture book so beautifully illustrated that it doesn't need a single word of text to be entrancing. This is one of those amazing books that delights your eye with the very first page and holds your attention all the way through. This is a fantastic bedtime book in nearly every respect. The story centers around bedtime and how nearly all the animals are ...
Hush Little Ones
A fabulous bed-time story book
John Butler really has a knack for illustrating children's books. When reading Hush Little Ones, one can't help but feel a sense of peace, calm and serenity. The soothing, lyrical words paired with lovely illustrations, allow you to watch the sun "go down" as the book progresses. This would make a fabulous bed-time story book for any home library. ~DeeDee Fox, Author and Illustrator, The ...
Good Night, Baby Bear
My son and I read this almost every night. The relationship between the mother and baby bear is so sweet and when baby bear gives his Mom a kiss on the nose at the end, my son does the same! Very sweet book with simple, pretty illustrations. This is one of our favorites.

My son asks for it over and over again
This book is a total gem. We discovered this book when my son was 2 (he's now 3) and he asks for it daily and has it memorized. The story is charmingly written, it's funny, and incorporates an easy countdown from 5 to 1 in the text, which is great for kids learning their numbers. And the illustrations are a scream.
Baby Can't Sleep
You Can't Sleep Through This One!
Personally, counting sheep has never put me to sleep and the delightfully entertaining ones in Baby Can't Sleep will keep you awake too. As a speech pathologist with Play on Words, I am always looking for good language enhancing books. First-time author, Lisa Schroeder takes on the challenges of the bedtime ritual. After kissing baby's head, "Mommy says `Good Night!' and goes to bed." Now a ...
Sounds for Silence (Baby Settling Program for Sleeping, Sounds for Silence)
Pediatrician Dr Harry Zehnwirth
oKIDokie Pty Ltd
A must for new parents!
Our newborn is good natured and peaceful. But there are times when he will cry and seem inconsolable. The cd in this program settles him almost every time. The sounds mimic those in the womb and really cam our baby, sometimes instantly. There are a variety of sounds, including some lullabies and soft music. The book is a good resource too for info on soothing a crying baby. A great item for ...
