Bedtime books are the best. One of my favorites is Sandra Boynton’s Going to Bed Book. It’s a silly goodnight book because after taking a bath and getting jammies on, the animal kids all exercise for a few minutes before they head to bed.

Boynton’s illustrations are as whimsical as always. The animals are acting like people in every scene, and there are details to enjoy.

But, as always, Boynton gives a nice balance of bedtime readiness and just plain fun, because it ends with the boat they are on rocking gently: “They rock and rock and rock to sleep.” It’s a nice book for rocking a child to sleep.
