This series of books uses simple dialogue, cute and clear illustrations (with fun textures and colours) and everyday situations to explain to children what is happening and what is expected of them. There is a section in each book for parents explaining how to use the book and other tips and tricks for the given situation (e.g. bedtime). Great tool for kids who need a visual or a social story to grasp what is going on and what to do.
My 3 1/2 year old called this a baby book but generally liked the story. He doesn't request it each night and caught on pretty fast why we were reading it--he was having sleep issues at the time. This helped along with a half dozen other strategies.
The way bedtime is presented in the book really mirrors our daughter's bedtime routine well, which has been helpful. This is basically a how-we-get-ready-for-bed book. There isn't really a fictional tale or character development or anything.
We purchased all of the Elizabeth Verdick books for use with our children. They are well written, great pictures, and extremely easy for a toddler to understand. So glad that we found these books and have them in our parent toolbox.
Love this book and highly recommend it. We have worked it into our two year old's bedtime routine and it definitely helps him to go to sleep easier. We read him other books before this and then use this as the last book of the night. He knows the words and says them along with us now. Love it and am thinking of buying it for others. We also have the naptime book which we use in the same routine.
I LOVE this book series. My granddaughter loves books and these are always her first 'go to' when she wants to read. Thanks to the author for a very well written series that actually teaches toddlers!
This series of books is my sons favorite. He's two and loves for me to read all of them to him. He goes to his book shelf and picks out this particular book for bedtime. This series is really special. It deals with a lot of issues that the kids may have as they grow up :) I recommend this book and the series to all families with small children.
Bedtime is always pretty dramatic around here with a 2 year old. We love out other books by Verdick & thought we'd give this one a try. We've incorporated it into our nighttime routine and repeat some of the phrases as we put out toddler to bed each night. I love all of these books!
