Babybear’s Favourite Books: ‘The Big Night-Night Book’ by Georgie Birkett

bignightnightbook

For Babybear’s first recommendation in, what will be, a series of favorites, it seems only right to select the current bedtime story of choice: The Big Night-Night Book.

The ‘story’ is a lovely rhyme in which the wee boy in the book says night-night to everything (teddy, cup, toothbrush, stars…) before snuggling down to sleep. There are some touchy-feely bits on every page and I love that in this book they enhance the bright and bold illustrations instead of being the main focus.

The illustrations in the book are familiar routines for wee ones, like getting their pyjamas on and having a glass of milk before bed. Babybear likes pointing out the cat on each page with cries of, “Dat! Dat!”. Personally, I like the page of the wee boy brushing his teeth, I have this vague hope that it might encourage Babybear to love getting her teeth brushed instead of trying to hide when its teeth brushing time!
