Pajama Time by Sandra Boynton

Age Range: 1 to 5

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!

Jessica age 4: “I like ‘Jamma, jamma, jamma, jamma P! J!’

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

  1. The jury is hung on this one in our house. While I am not a big fan of the book my daughter absolutely adores it and has fits of giggles. We “jam” together and I have to admit that it is fun to read with a little one. The rhyme is cute and if you like the style of illustration you will love this book!

    • We also have books that I am not so keen to read but my daughter loves. I find going to the library interesting, that is where my daughter can choose what she wants, not necessarily my choices but it is developing her independence as a reader. Good for us as parents to move into new territory too :) I hate to think how many good picture book stories I may have missed simply because the illustrations didn’t appeal to me.

  2. The boys like “Your Personal Penguin” which comes with a free download of the book set to music sung by Davy Jones (I think they prefer Davy to my vocal stylings). I love “But Not The Hippopotamus.” It is the tale of a shy hippopotamus in world of animal pairs. There are two versions of the story. Make sure you get the copy with: “The hog and frog cavort in the bog.” Dancing just doesn’t compare.

  3. Pajama time is probably our favourite book too. I often sing to song to Simon when I put his pajamas on him. Talking about songs: The Sandra Boynton CD Rhinoceros Tap has lived in my car’s CD player for years. and we also love her other CDs.
