Night Night, Daddy by Amy Parker is a very sweet bedtime story of a fox and the daddy spending a wonderful day together. The little fox reminds me of a little boy enjoying a summer evening with his dad, camping, eating pancakes for dinner, flying kites, telling stories around a camp fire and sleeping in a tent. The board book is high quality and the illustrations are so adorable! The story is sweet and a quick read for those little ones who like to read lots of books before bed. I would give the book a 4 star for the story itself, but the quality of the board book and illustrations make it a 5.

The Berenstain Bears Bear Country Fun Sticker and Activity Book has 32 pages of classically illustrated activities with our favorite characters and a variety of activities. The best part of this activity book is that the stickers are reusable. If you've ever used stickers with a 2 year old, you know how important it is to be able to peel off stickers and put them somewhere else. The only thing is, it's kind of difficult to re-peel off the stickers... your little one may need a little help. Also, because the pages are a bit glossy, makers and pens should be tested before your little one goes to town on it! Or your little one may have more smudges of colorful markers/pens on themselves and in the book. I think overall, this is a cute activity book for kids from ages 2-6.

My Bedtime Story Bible for Little Ones byJean E. Syswerda is a nice little boardbook with bedtime devotionals for little ones. The stories are quick and easy to read for beginner readers as well. I like that each story ends with "Good night" to the characters and "Good night. Sleep tight." There is also a "Tuck In" section with things for your little ones to thank God for. Very sweet.
Even though this would not be my first choice for bedtime devotionals, I think toddlers will like the color illustrations and the stories of our favorite Bible characters.

God is Watching Over You by P.J. Lyons is an adorable bedtime story. The board book is nice and sturdy and a quick read for little ones who always want another story at bedtime. The illustrations are adorable and the message is wonderful. Comforting little ones before bedtime with the message that God is watching over them always. I would recommend this book for babies and toddlers!

7 Days of Awesome by Shawn Byous is a super fun book! One of my requirements for bedtime stories is that it can't be too long, fun, and easy to ready. I need to be able to quickly read through the book with my toddler. I was pleasantly surprised by how cute the illustrations are and love the flow of the story. I like that the book rhymes but not a complete tongue twister like many of our other books. I would definitely recommend this book for all families!
