REVIEW: This is a colorful, sweet padded Board book I just loved reading. It reminded me of a family favorite book by Margaret Wise Brown; called Good Night Moon. Unlike that book, this adventure takes place on a train. It opens with a train pulling up to Laurelwood station where a family and a few others wait to board. The second page shows everyone boarding the train. The next page says, “Hurry, now, and find a seat. “Choo! Choo!” the whistle blows. The engineer is ready now – to Sleepytown we go!....”Night Night, people.” “Night Night, town.” “Night Night, sun, going down.”

Each page takes the family closer to sleepy town. They go to the dinner car, read a book. Take a bath, brush their teeth, say prayers and finally get in bed. The pictures are cuddly adorable and reading the book warms your heart and makes you smile.

I liked the last paragraph, “God’s creations all around – He cares for us, big and small. We rest peacefully knowing that His hand’s hold it all.”

This is a precious story can easily become part of any bed time routine!
