The Going to Bed Book Reviews

  • Penny

    A must for every new parent. Our family has it memorized. We love this book!

  • Karawan

    I love the silliness of this book. Maybe it's the French literature major in me, recalling Ionesco and the theater of the absurd....

    I love that the animals are on a boat. As random as it seems, it kind of makes me think of Noah's ark (even though they aren't in pairs). I love that when you think they're going upstairs to bed, they're really going up to exercise.

    I love the silliness of this book. Maybe it's the French literature major in me, recalling Ionesco and the theater of the absurd....

    I love that the animals are on a boat. As random as it seems, it kind of makes me think of Noah's ark (even though they aren't in pairs). I love that when you think they're going upstairs to bed, they're really going up to exercise. Just something about the fact that you assume you know what's coming, only to turn the page and see something completely different! I can see that being the sort of thing that would send small children into fits of giggles.

    At the same time, the rhyming and the rhythmic repetition of "rock and rock and rock to sleep" at the end set it up as a nice bedtime story for small children. I love rocking my son in my arms to the rhythm of the rocking boat when we read that last page.

  • Stephanie

    Really fun bedtime book! I love the funny illustrations and rhyming text. My favorite illustrations are the exercising ones... although like many others, I wonder why they are exercising right before bed; I think it makes the book even funnier though. This is definitely one that is worth being read again and again!

    First read: 8/24/15

    I don’t generally add the books I read to Owen as part of my challenge, but I think I’ve read this at least 50 times this year, so on it goes. Plus, he loves it.

  • Valerie

    I should pass these along to another parent, but I am hopeful I will have a chance to read them to another generation of children.

  • Chris

    My two-year-old son and I have settled into a bedtime routine where we read

    and then we read this book. He loves when the animals brush and brush and brush their teeth and he loves when the boat rocks and rocks and rocks the animals to sleep but his favorite part is when they all go up...to exercise! That page never fails to get a belly laugh out of him.

  • Anittah

    I could not relate to the characters' motivations to exercise just before bed in their pajamas.

  • Kerry Baker

    Sandra Boynton is always fun to read to my daughter.

  • midnightfaerie

    We can't get enough of Sandra Boynton's illustrations. Just so cute with the different animals that my kids like to guess and the rhyming is fun too. A little silly with the animals doing things like exercising before bed, but it just adds to the allure. My 5 yr old is a little past it, but enjoyed it immensely when he was younger, and now enjoys reading it to his younger brothers. A must have for any Boynton fan!

  • Pooja

    Getting a nap in the morning is more adventurous than going to bed in the night!
