I’m so excited! I finally get to do a review with my granddaughter, Harmony. She is a smart 16 month old beauty. Books are her favorite thing right now and she always wants to read with us, so this is a perfect fit. She carries her books around like they are her prized possessions and we hope and pray she will be a lifelong reader because readers are thinkers! We both enjoy reading Bedtime with Mommy.
About Bedtime with Mommy
All around the world, it’s bedtime, and Mommies are tucking little ones into bed. From the elephants on the grasslands to the camels in the desert to the polar bears in the Arctic, it’s time for snuggles, prayers, and bedtime kisses.
This adorable board book features a Mommy and baby animal in eight different habitats getting ready for bed. The final spread features Mommy tucking a child into bed.
The book is written by Nancy I. Sanders and illustrated by Felia Hanakata. You can purchase the book here.
Nancy I. Sanders is the children’s author of over 100 books, published with houses both big and small.
Nancy’s nonfiction picture book, D is for Drinking Gourd: An African American Alphabet, (Sleeping Bear Press) won various awards and sold over 80,000copies upon initial publication.
Her delightful classroom bestseller with Scholastic Teaching Resources, 25 Read and Write Mini-Books That Teach Word Families, has sold over 300,000 copies and is still selling strong.
Mom Maven’s Thoughts
Harmony and I love this book. She brings it to me to read every time she visits! She is learning about animals right now so we have expanded her animals to include the eight animals in this book. We love that the book comes from a Christian worldview and includes bedtime prayers, Bible reading, and hymn singing as regular parts of life. Not a lot of books for young children include these important daily activities.
Bedtime with Mommy would make a wonderful Christmas book for the young child in your life. You can purchase the book here, or you can enter to win a copy here. Either way, we know you will enjoy this book.
