29. “Pajama Time” by Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton has lived with us since my son was still a drooling baby. Me and my husband instantaneously took to her books and quickly became pros at reading them. It is not as easy as you might think. To achieve a full effect, you need to make faces, animal sounds, dance, sing and do all kind of crazy things. But I can tell you one thing: your child will love it.

Once my son stopped chewing on literature, we took a break from little board books and progressed to paper picture books. But as we were going through a book shelve a few days ago, we rediscovered Sandra Boyton’s classics and celebrated the Pajama Time again.

It was a perfect good night story. The characters are hysterical. The text is so melodic that we were singing it and wiggling in the bed. As I was reading the rhymes, my son was laughing at the pictures and commented on different pajama patterns and types. We were choosing our most and least favorites, and debated what pajama would suit Daddy, for example.

Although the book is quite funny and lively, the tone gets ‘sleepy’ by the end so you don’t have to worry about your child getting the second wind at bed time. Instead, it will make them fall asleep in a good mood.
