I wish that we had discovered Sandra Boynton’s books earlier than we did. They have my daughter in fits of giggles and as she is currently fascinated by words that rhyme they are great for her to ‘read’ herself. The pictures are bright and colourful and the rhyming text is easy to read out loud. The books are great for all young children, the youngest children will enjoy the rhymes and pictures and they are also ideal for children who are starting to read by themselves and learning about rhyming words.
The Story: Pajama Time tells the story of a group of animals putting their pyjamas on and getting ready for bed. It describes different kinds of pyjamas and shows the ritual of going to bed before introducing the moves to ‘pajama time’, a dance that makes my daughter laugh every time we read the book.
Great fun for the littlest of people!

‘The Going To Bed Book’ also makes us laugh, it adds unexpected activity before bed!
