Goodnight Sleepy Babies
Janet Bingham & Sebastien Brawn
Published by Scholastic
Reviewed by me and The Bundles
This is a book which appealed to me because we are always on the look out for gentle, bed time stories to share and this one looked (and is!) ideal for both Bundles. Bundle Number One appreciated the story itself and Bundle Number Two enjoyed the beautiful illustrations and pointing to the animals.
The story is about a Rabbit settling her baby down for bed, but first they must say goodnight to all of the other animals. On each double page spread there is a beautiful illustration of an adult animal preparing their baby for bed, using soft, dark colours to provide the perfect accompaniment for the rhyming narrative which uses words including as ‘comfy’ , ‘snuggle’ and ‘cradled’ to conjure up a gentle, sleepy atmosphere.
This is a lovely book for bedtime, and ideal for sharing as a family. We love it and would definitely recommend it to others
