4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Illustrated Bed Time Rhyme, 5 Sep 2012
This review is from: A Bed of Your Own (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Funny, easy to read, not too long and nicely illustrated, A Bed of Your Own is a great bedtime book.

My son, aged 2 years and 5 months as I write this, certainly enjoys having it read to him before bedtime and I enjoy reading it. Some of the verse doesn't quite scan, but that's a very minor problem. The concepts and imagery are easy for young children to grasp without being so simplistic that it annoys the adult doing the reading. The ideas of cows in pyjamas and horses with toys are funny whatever age you are. The illustrations, colourful, bold and sometimes surreal (cows in tutus?) also appeal to children and adults alike.

Its also blissfully brief. At the end of a long day with a small, tired child you don't want a book that takes ages to plough through and tests their's and your patience. A Bed Of Your Own is just about the right length.

Finally its the perfect subject matter for a bedtime story, since it deals with the primary subject at hand, and that's always helpful.

Recommended.
