Book Description

30 Oct 2004 Sam Books
"The finale is so satisfying that it calls for an encore. 'Again!' Sam says, as will readers of this cozy story." - CHILD magazine

It was a dark and stormy night on Plum Street. In the little white house, Mrs. Bear was putting Sam to bed.

Outside, the wind blows and the rain comes down. Inside, it is Sam's bedtime. Mrs. Bear reads him a story, tucks him in, and brings him warm milk. "Are you ready now, Sam?" she asks. "I'm waiting," he says. What else does Sam need before he'll go to sleep? Could Mrs. Bear have forgotten a kiss? Now this NEW YORK TIMES best-selling story by two of the most beloved picture book creators is available in a board book edition suitable for the youngest listeners. The board book comes on its own or packaged along with an irresistible plush Sam bear, just waiting for his own good-night kiss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great bedtime book 7 July 2002
By Robin B
My 2 1/2 year old loves this book, as do I since it's a big help in getting her to go to bed.
The story is simple and the illustrations are a delight. Not as complex as, say, Pumpkin Soup but great for the around 2 - 3 year old mark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle calming read for bedtime 13 Sep 2007
This is such a lovely book for bedtime. Both my girls have enjoyed it between the ages of 18 months to 3 years.

We used this book as part of our nightly routine for a few months. The pictures are interesting but not cluttered, which gives enough to talk about, without being over exciting at bedtime. We copied the actions of Mrs Bear (yawning, hands behind back, kissing Sam). They spotted the mouse on some pages and counted the toys. By the end of the story, both girls were ready for bed.

The book has been repaired several times, but the bear has survived better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss good night sam a lovely bedtime story 16 July 2007
Kiss good night Sam is a lovely bedtime story, beautifully illustrated and a my 2 1/2 year old loves it. We do all the good night kisses with the story and the final bit where Sam says goodnight and goes to sleep works a treat for my Son who copies it and goes to sleep. A fabulous snuggly story for getting little ones off to sleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son Sam's favourite night time book. 10 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been reading this to my son Sam since he was about 10months old, he's now 14months. I have since introduced other books to our bed time reading ritual, but he'll always point to this one. It's a lovely repetitive book for going to bed, and its nice the way it's followed at the end 'kiss goodnight Sam.' which marks my Sam's time to go to sleep too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Current favourite in our ouse 5 Feb 2009
Format:Board book
We got this book from the library and had to renew it three times! My 20 mnth old loves this. We read it twice every night! I think we are going to have to buy a copy. The text is natural sounding with lots of repetition and opportunities for sound effects. The illustrations are richly coloured wit plenty of detail. This is a lovely book for the very young but I think it would be a very nice one to read together as a cild gets older.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful book 11 Jan 2008
Format:Board book
We start this book quite 'spookily' "It was a dark and stormy night ..." and the children love the change in pace. I'm hoping that they'll see that even 'scary' weather can be endured. We've all really enjoyed this book and it's now my 18 month old's favourite too. All of my children have picked up on the "...once, twice, then twice more" kisses and have been through phases of asking for this 'style' of good night kiss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Good Night Sam 21 Nov 2008
By Jenny
This really is a lovely bedtime story and for any other time really. My son (called Sam) absolutely adores it and if feeling slightly under the weather will always plump for this book out of the vast collection of story books we own. There are several other "Sam" books by Amy Hest and they are all adorable.

Nice, small (although not as small as you might think from the image) book with a good bedtime story. The toy ("Sam") is also pretty decent and my little girl loves holding him as the story is being read.
