I strongly believe that it is important to expose little ones to books. The more exposure the better off they will be. It has become a nightly routine for Lee Lee and I to read books together. Sometimes it just ten minutes and sometimes it is an hour. It all depends how long I can keep him interested. Recently our favorite books to read are several from Good Night Books Series. This post is a sponsored post, but all opinions, stories, and my experience are all personal and true (like always)!
The Good Night Books Series of board books has been designed and developed since 2005 to celebrate special places and themes in a way that young children, ages 0-5, can easily relate to and enjoy with their families. All the books are written and illustrated with a simplicity that captures the “essence” of each subject and place.
Every book is printed in bright colors on high-quality board to endure the attention of young children. All have six-inch by six-inch pages, making for large 12 x 6 open page spreads.
Each title takes its readers through the passage of a day (“good morning,” “good afternoon,” “good evening,” and “good night”). And most titles, if set in a place with seasonality, also include the seasons of the year (spring, summer, autumn, and winter). Children are further introduced to the practice of using polite salutations and greetings, all while being lulled to a good night’s sleep.
The series is, in part, inspired by Walt Whitman’s poems, such as the classic book Leaves of Grass and the famous poem “Song of Myself,” in which the poet catalogs item after item, in a process whereby the mere naming of each item draws attention to it and thus imbues it with a sense of import. The Good Night Our World Series tries to recognize and celebrate the world in a Whitmanesque spirit.
Lee Lee and I love these books!! They are short and sweet so we are able to finish a book before he is ready to move. (He’s a very active boy!) The books are made of a sturdy board, because of this I am comfortable in letting him handle the books. I am not worried that he is going to tear them. The colors of the illustrations are bright and beautiful. They draw his attention to the pages. My favorite part of the series is they can be related to. They have so many options for Good Night books that you can find several that will fit the need/desire of every little boy or girl.
