My Child’s FAVORITE book

I know this book by heart. Baby girl has 100 books in the shelf, but she brings me this one every night. We have to read it at least 3 times. Fortunately, since I have it memorized, I can “read” it in the dark with my “special mommy eyes.” She loves the repetitive parts like “scrub scrub scrub” and “brush and brush and brush their teeth” and “rock and rock and rock to sleep” She will rub her belly and mime brushing her teeth and rock back and forth. So cute!

Good practice for any age

I read the one-star review, and I think it's a bit harsh. To translate and rhyme is quite difficult, and Spanish is not as easy to rhyme in when you have a prescribed sentence to convey. So, sure, it's not the easiest, simplest form to read, but I do believe the spirit of the English version is still intact. My children, students, and I all enjoy this book, and read it regularly for fun, and also for extra practice for their Spanish reading skills. My older students enjoy translating it and using it to practice grammatical structures. All in all, Boynton does a great job with the pictures and stories, and I believe the translation is as good as it could be really - it depends on the reader and the voice inflection. Huevos Verdes con jamón is by far the BEST translated rhyming book I've seen, though. El gato en el sombrero is WAY worse than this.... so I think it's worth having in your library. Sra.

Bedtime with Boynton!

I only had one other Boynton book "Snuggle Puppy" which my daughter loves so I wanted to get her another Boynton book. "The Going to Bed" book is a hit! This book is about several different animals in different shapes and sizes getting ready for bed on a boat. They brush their teeth, excersize and put on pajamas. The illustrations are cute and her rythmic poetry is perfectly easy to read. My daughter absolutely loves the pictures and she must like the sound of the words because she gets so excited by this book. I personally like this book for reading at bedtime because of its length. Its short, sweet and to the point. And the very last page of the book "They rock and rock and rock to sleep" is perfect when read slowly to emphasize the end of the day. Her books are precious and very inexpensive. This is not a book you will be donating or selling at a garage sale. Your baby/child will love it!

Calming Book for Bedtime, But Also Funny and Engaging!

Sandra Boynton's colorful board book is a bedtime treat! An assortment of expressive animals gets ready for bed aboard a giant boat. Boynton amusingly shows then bathing, dressing, brushing teeth ("With some on top and some beneath, they brush and brush and brush their teeth."), and exercising together. It closes with the animals settling down for the night: "They rock and rock and rock to sleep." Graced by Boynton's well-known illustrations and rhythmic, lullabye-like poetry, this is a great book for infants and toddlers alike. It's one of those books you'll keep long after the kid(s) grow up.

Excellent

After reading all of the positive reviews here, I decided to order this book for my two year old son, who loves to read. I must admit, I probably would never have picked it out, but my son absolutely loves it! Everytime we finish reading it, he says, "Mommy, read again." I recommend it to anyone who has a little reader at home.

This is a bedtime MUST!

My 17 month old daughter Diana absolutely adores this book, as does her 31 year old mother! It has a remarkably calming effect on her when she's all wound up at the end of the day, and fighting sleep as children her age are wont to do. The wonderful rhythm of the words is soothing, and easy for her to understand. She has begun "reading" along with me, and it's delightful to actually witness her learning. Thank you, Sandra Boynton, for putting your remarkable talent towards such a wonderful thing as children's books!!!
