I love to read and have loved it since I was young. One of the best things is having a daughter who also loves to read. She asks me at least 5 times a day to read to her, most of the time its about 50 times.
I recently received the book Time for Bed, Sleepyhead from BookLook Bloggers and my daughter instantly wanted to read it. This story is a children’s book to help little ones get ready to sleep. This book begins with a little one named Little Bear not wanting to go to sleep and the momma telling her young one a story. She includes all of his friends and tells a story of them heading to the beach for a fun day. As she tells the story to Little Bear she explains why sleep is important.
I really liked the message of this book. It explains why sleep is important, but in a way little ones can understand. I did however did not like that every couple of pages the mom telling the story would list off all the animals names. Normally I wouldn’t mind it but there was 7 of Little Bears friends and it became very repetitive. Another thing I really liked about this book was the illustrations. The illustrator Gail Yerrill did a wonderful job at painting the picture for my daughter to look at. She absolutely loved this book and has been reading daily since we got it. I definitely recommend this book for parents to read with their children.
