Time for bed

Mama pig is in the kitchen, talking on the phone and her little piggies will do just about anything to keep from going to bed! In this playful romp depicting what NOT to do when Mama's distracted, the rabble rousing piggies jump on the bed, have a pillow fight and do somersaults in a most noisy manner. The minute they hear Mama coming to check on them, however, they rush (oink, oink, stomp, stomp?) back under the covers ?where they finally snuggle together and get goodnight kisses. Michelle Meadows' "Piggies in Pajamas" features a sing-songy rhyming text ideal for reading aloud. This is a book every preschooler can relate to and every parent will enjoy reading to them ? culminating with a gentle snuggle and squeeze. Nighty night.

"Bedtime for Boo" by Mickie Matheis

"In a big dark house, sitting high on a hill?" So begins this picture book featuring a cute little ghost named Boo -who likes to stay up late like all ghosts do. Bats, mice, mummies, owls and witches make short, but not scary, appearances. And the sounds of a haunted evening - all the whooshes and hisses and howls - enhance this fun read-aloud. Great for little goblins, whether it's Halloween time or just bedtime.
