Amazon.com Review

For a little one who is reluctant to go to bed, every now and then a silly book is just the ticket. And in the case of silly books, Sandra Boynton is the undisputed queen. In The Going to Bed Book, an ark full of animals watches the sun go down and then prepares for bed. They take a bath (“in one big tub”), find pajamas, brush their teeth, do exercises up on deck (believe an elephant jumping rope, a moose lifting weights, and a pig doing handstands), and after all say good night.

The moon is high. The sea is deep.
They rock
and rock
and rock
to sleep.

Boynton’s inimitable animal characters have graced the pages of scads of picture books through the years. She has an peculiar knack for knowing what appeals to small children: simple rhymes, goofy animals in goofy settings, and sweet, comforting stories. This book, together with her many other board-book titles (Moo, Baa, La La La!, But Not the Hippopotamus, and others) will surely remain a favorite. (Baby to preschool) –Emilie Coulter
