Pros:Colorful, great characters, easy to follow.
This is one of those books that will stay in my heart always. When I think of this book, I think of all the nights snuggling close in the rocking chair with my son. This was the first book I read to him when he was a baby. I knew he couldn't really understand the words, but I wanted to start a bedtime routine as early as possible. I would give him a bath, and settle down in the rocking chair to nurse him to sleep. But before that, I would always read him "The Going To Bed Book".

It got to the point where I could recite the entire book without even looking. I loved the cute animal characters that Sandra Boynton used, as well as the book depicting the ritual of washing, brushing teeth, exercising, getting on P.J.'s and going to bed. As the book ended ..."and they rocked and rocked and rocked to sleep" I would give an extra rock to the rocking chair and always end by saying "The Going To Bed Book".
Now that my son has outgrown the book, I read it to my daughter who is 3. Not having read it in a several years in between my kids, I was so excited to start the tradition again with my daughter. But you know what...? I still catch my son listening in sometimes, and invite him to snuggle and listen too.
When my daughter outgrows this book, it will take a very special place in my box of memories. It has really become a family tradition for my kids. I will cherish it and the fun we had with it always.
