Bedtimes stories are a great way to get the little one off to bed. It's even better when you have a chance to read them stories that recount the wonderful fun they've had with their mommy and daddy throughout the day. Night Night, Mommy and Night Night, Daddy are two beautiful bedtime stories written by Amy Parker that offer a sweet reminder of the special bond between a parent and their child.
ABOUT NIGHT NIGHT, DADDY:
Night Night, Daddy features an animal family settling down for bedtime, recalling shared moments between father and child that occurred throughout the day. All of these special moments are relatable to you and your toddler or preschooler, and this bonding time is a wonderful way for your child to tell you “night night” as he drifts off to sleep.
ABOUT NIGHT NIGHT, MOMMY:
Night Night, Mommy features an animal family settling down for bedtime, recalling shared moments between mother and child that occurred throughout the day. All of these special moments are relatable to you and your toddlers or preschoolers, and this bonding time is a wonderful way for your children to tell you “night night” as they drift off to sleep.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Amy Parker has written more than thirty books for children, teens, and adults, including the best-selling A Night Night Prayer, Thank You, God, for Mommy, and Thank You, God, for Daddy. She has also collaborated with authors ranging from New York Times bestsellers to her very own son. Two of these collaborations--Firebird and Courageous Teens--are recipients of Christian Retailing's Best Awards.
I really like that there is both a mother and a father version in the Night Night series. Both are sturdy board books with a soft padded cover, so when you are not reading them to your child at night, little hands can flip through them during the day. The illustrations by Lee Holland are full of delicate, beautiful colors. In Night Night, Daddy we see a father fox and his child and in Night Night, Mommy, a mother otter and her child. Each book is slightly different in reference to the activities and special moments that each parent shares with their little one. For instance, mom will dance and pray with her child, while dad will build a fort and talk about God's awesome power with his.
This is not the first time we've acquired a pair of books like this. We have been reading I Love You, Daddy and I Love You Mommy to my son before he was even a year old. I enjoy reading the mother version and my husband reads the father version to him, although sometimes we do switch it up. Now we can do the same for both Night Night, Daddy and Night Night, Mommy.
From Night Night, Daddy:
A bubble battle at bath time
Makes getting clean more fun;
Soon we’re laughing oh so hard,
We don’t even know who won!
From Night, Night, Mommy:
Oh, Mommy, what a day we’ve had!
We’ve played and learned and then
We'll snuggle in and say, "night night"
Before we do it again!
Both Mother's Day and Father's Day are right around the corner, so why not celebrate the special bond between a mother and her child and/or a father and his child by sharing one or both of these sweet bedtimes stories with your little one.
