Night Night, Train {Board Book Review + GIVEAWAY}

Pin It

When it comes to getting my little one to sleep, nothing beats a good bedtime story. We even keep a special collection on a shelf right next to my son's bed. Our recent addition to our bedtime collection is a sweet new book called Night Night, Train by Amy Parker.

Night Night, Train takes children on a journey through a dusky landscape in preparation for bedtime. Full of dreamy illustrations and rhymes to help lull children to sleep, Night Night, Train will appeal to all little ones as the perfect bedtime book.

Amy Parker has made her mark as an experienced and versatile writer and editor who has a particular enthusiasm for children's books. She authored the bestselling A Night Night Prayer and has collaborated with authors ranging from a New York Times bestseller to her own son.

Night Night, Train offers a padded hardcover with rounded corners, making it safe for little ones. Inside, you'll find sturdy board book pages that are filled up with wondrous illustrations of precious puppy families as they get ready to board the train to sleepyland. My son absolutely adores these illustrations, and there are plenty of colors and details to look at.

What's really neat about this story is that there are actually two stories in one. One area includes the main storyline that contains rhyming prose as it breaks down the bedtime routine of the little puppies on the train–taking a bubbly bath, brushing their teeth, putting on their pajamas, and saying their prayers. Additional rhyming text is included on each page, displayed in blue font. There is some curvature in the lines, which leads me to believe that it is a song variation of the story. At least for us it's a song–after we read the main story, I like to go back and sing the other lines of blue text to my son. He always gets a kick out of it.

Night Night, Train is such an adorable book and another keeper from author, Amy Parker. We always enjoy her books and even have a few others in her Night Night series like Night Night, Farm, Night Night, Mommy, and Night Night, Daddy. Each of these books would make a wonderful addition to any child's nighttime routine. My son enjoys trains, so he especially likes this latest one in the Night Night collection.
