Product description

Amazon.com Review

For a little one who is reluctant to go to bed, sometimes a silly book is just the ticket. And when it comes to silly books, Sandra Boynton is the undisputed queen. In The Going to Bed Book, an ark full of animals watches the sun go down and then prepares for bed. They take a bath ("in one big tub"), find pajamas, brush their teeth, do exercises up on deck (imagine an elephant jumping rope, a moose lifting weights, and a pig doing handstands), and finally say good night.
The moon is high. The sea is deep.
They rock
and rock
and rock
to sleep.
Boynton's inimitable animal characters have graced the pages of scads of picture books over the years. She has an extraordinary knack for knowing what appeals to small children: simple rhymes, goofy animals in goofy settings, and sweet, comforting stories. This book, along with her many other board-book titles (Moo, Baa, La La La!, But Not the Hippopotamus, and others) will surely remain a favorite. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book
By Deep on 21 February 2019
This book has a special place in my heart. I got it when I was 8 months pregnant and was buying stuff for my soon to be born baby. And I am glad that I bought this. Read so many good reviews about this book and was looking for a small yet interesting board book. This one is a steal for sure.

I started reading this book to my baby when she was as little as 3 months and now that she is about to be 6 months old, she loves the way I read the book and giggles alot. Though the pictures aren’t too fascinating for her liking, I am pretty sure she is going to love this book as she grows.

Overall, a great buy and highly recommended for new parents.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better
By Biplabh on 25 August 2019
The book could have been better if the figures would have been more clearer. Its difficult for toddlers to identify shapes as presented in the book.
Things I like about the book:
1) Build: Board Book
2) Story
3) Colors
Things I don't like about the book:
1) figures are not clear
2) Too many animals all together with not so clearer pictures.
3) Not engaging as compared to other books for toddler.
Better books are available.
