The Bedtime Book by Mary Engelbreit is a great choice for helping lull those little ones to bed. This book features classic poems, memorable prayers, and many recognizable songs. The book is geared toward children ages 4-8 years old. However, it’s really a lovely picture book to look at for children as well as for adults that may be fans of this artists work.
What you’ll find within this book’s 32 pages are the following writings; Tucked in Tight, Twinkle Twinkle, Time for Bed, Sleepy Time, My Shephard, Sound Asleep, Happy Hearts, Thank You!, Counting Sheep, What Will Tomorrow Bring, A Goodnight Prayer, and The Man in the Moon. Each page features text and colorful whimsical illustrations that pair perfectly with the writings.
Many of the short writings, poems, and prayers in this book I recall from books my mother read to me as a child. I adore being able to share these fun rhyming verses with my children paired with such creative, detailed, and memorable illustrations to gaze upon. Every time we read these and look at the pictures we always find and point out something new!
I do wish that the original writers of each of the shared the content would have been mentioned as I’d love to know. This, however, doesn’t take away from the book at all. My children and I enjoyed this book enormously. I personally loved the prayers and the mention of our God the most.
It’s the perfect collection of sleepy time things book to add to the bedside of my children to read during bed or nap time. It would make a lovely gift as well.
The Bedtime Book by Mary Engelbreit can be found on Amazon.com as well as other retailers in digital and board book format.
