Our baby started first grade just a few weeks ago and as you can imagine, our bedtime routine clearly needs some fine tuning. In the new book Sleepy, the Goodnight Buddy by Drew Daywalt and illustrator Scott Campbell, a funny tale of nighttime routines will have all the kids laughing and parents too!
Our bedtime routine consists of a snack, teeth brushing, and reading for 15 minutes before it is lights out. Now, in theory, that sounds great, but we always manage to get a few “I can’t sleep” and “I can’t find a cold spot in the bed” and of course, “Mama what are we going to do tomorrow?” before the sweet sound of slumber occurs.
Sleepy, the Goodnight Buddy
Reading with my little girl is one of my most favorite times of the day. She still likes to be snuggled in, and I know these days won’t last forever, so I am enjoying every last minute. This new book, Sleepy, the Goodnight Buddy, is hysterical. It is so on-point to the struggles that we as parents face in our night time routine, but told in such a funny manner that you will be sure to laugh out loud.
Roderick hates to go to bed so his parents give him a stuffed animal, Sleepy, to help him go to bed. However, Sleepy turns out to be quite high-maintenance and his antics get to be exhausting. My favorite line in the book is, “Once upon a time there was a witch with a very big butt. In fact, it was so big that when she…” Hysterical.
