Silly Lullaby (Boynton on Board)
It all starts with the big bear observing to the little bear in the red footie pajamas:
Your pajamas are on.
There’s a duck on your head.
I think that this means
you are ready for bed.
Curl up with your favorite little person and this charmingly unpredictable go-to-sleep book. Whether you are a parent, child, or just another snoozing chicken in the bathtub, Silly Lullaby is truly a sweet dream surprise. The sneakers in the freezer heartily concur.
What I loved: This book is complete nonsense, and toddlers will certainly love it. They can understand that the owl should not be saying moo and that sneakers don't belong in the freezer and love that they are in on the joke. The actual song is really well composed and clever. The book is short with very clear text, making this a great choice to read out loud. It is also very interactive which can help with settling young children down before bed. Although this may spark some giggles, it's a really fun read with a lovely melody (once you learn it) that will certainly appeal to the young audience. The illustrations are perfectly suited to the book with plenty of bright colors and cute, cartoonish animals.
Final verdict: Delightfully ridiculous, SILLY LULLABY is a fun addition to any Boynton collection. Toddlers will adore the jokes that appeal to their level plus the great illustrations and lovely melody. This is a quick and fun board book that can be used as a bedtime- or just-for-fun- book.
