Sun is Falling, Night is Calling
May 20th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Dusk’s around us,

Night is near.

Mama says,

“Come snuggle here.”

I am not easily impressed by simple bedtime stories. In fact, it seems sometimes that the simplest books are the most difficult to do well, because they require such thoughtfulness when it comes to word and picture in order to avoid trite cliches.  I am, however, extremely impressed with  Sun is Falling, Night is Calling.  This is bedtime storytelling at its best, and any parent of a young child would be remiss in passing it up.

Bus-a-Saurus Bop
Mar 11th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Early in the mornin’

when the sun is done a-snorin’,

Pajama Time! and The Going To Bed Book
Mar 5th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Get yourself set to pajama-dee-bop—

it’s PAJAMA TIME!

 

One word.  That’s all it takes to illustrate the incomparable appeal of Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton. Granted, it’s really three words in one, but you get my point: I defy anyone, of any age, to resist falling head-over-heels for a book that includes the word “pajama-dee-bop”.

If Animals Kissed Good Night
Feb 5th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

If animals kissed

like we kiss good night . . .

 

. . . they would all have their own unique bedtime rituals, much like human parents and children.

This is a beautiful book for parents and little ones to share at bedtime. Sweet (but not sappy), gentle rhyming descriptions of how different animal parents would kiss their children goodnight are perfectly complemented by David Walker’s smudgy pastel-coloured illustrations of these animal families settling down for the night.
