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.
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! (
/exec/obidos/ASIN/067144901X/%24%7B0%7D ), But Not the Hippopotamus ( /exec/obidos/ASIN/0671449044/%24%7B0%7D ), and
others) will surely remain a favorite. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
