There are new adventures to rhyme your way through with Llama Llama nighty-night. Anna Dewdney has provided a book intended for a younger audience, but it will fail only in the fact that any age will enjoy reading or hearing this story read, just like the earlier series of Llama Llama books. I, and my grandkids, love her rhyming stories, and each family has been given a full set of the Llama Llama tales. They read and re-read, and when they learn to read, the older reading grandchildren are reading them to the younger. It's their favorite books, so says more than one mommy in the family.
I purchased the board books to begin our newest grandson on Llama Llama even before he's able to sit up by himself. Never too young to hear a rhyming story. Will nighty-night put him to sleep? Mama Mama in real life hopes so. Llama Llama nighty-night goes through all the steps to learn to get into bed through the mama desired correct procedure. So, tiny tot educational as well. I'll not spoil the fun and tell the steps, you'll have to buy and read to find out.
The pictures are exactly as they are with the older, larger books. Large and colorful characters, and a heavy page book designed to last. I tried opening the first book flat to see how it responded and was pleased to see the construction of the spine causes only a planned binding crease on the back cover, never one on the front. Well unless abused, I guess. 7 hard boards bound with pictures and story on all sides, which also includes the cover and back.
I will be buying them all, for Grandson Frankie, you understand, not for me, I'm too old...no I'm not, I love nighty-night.
A fast read. :)
