Grandpa Bernie's Bedtime Stories by Bernard Ditchik
Grandpa Bernie's Bedtime Stories - Bernard Ditchik

This book is no where near Mother Goose but I personally enjoyed it as much as the kids. The stories are original and fresh. Most come with a bit of a lesson as well. I personally like to read educational in some way stories to the kids. Life Lessons are a great way to teach the kids to be people you can be proud of .This book is great at gently teaching these lessons.

The stories feature animals as the characters and in most they are the main characters. Each of the stories are short and great for bedtime. Grandpa Bernie has done an amazing job with these stories. I would be more then proud to give a copy of this book to family and friends Children as gifts. My Grand Children ages 2 and 5 really enjoyed this book. There are 18 stories in the book. Great for bedtime as I said but also great for a few minutes of cuddle time.

How to Train Your Dragon - Cressida Cowell

I've just started reading this one with my five-year-old at bedtime. He's watched the film and series, so I thought he might like the stories, since he's outgrown many of our usual bedtime books. So far, so good. We're reading one chapter a night, and he's doing a great job remembering what happened the previous chapter every time we start up again.

The Mermaid Tales: Celia's Best Friends:... The Mermaid Tales: Celia's Best Friends: Bedtime story, Beginner reader, Ages 3-8, Books For Kids, Values - Chloe Sanders

This book was okay.

For me, the biggest problem was the writing itself. It was very simple, often too simple ("The sun was warm, and the water was wet"). I realize this is meant for young readers, but the descriptions were very vague. I couldn't really picture the events happening based on the descriptions.

Also, there were many awkward similes like comparing something to a tree or an ice cream cone. These seemed like weird comparisons for creatures who live underwater.

The story was cute, although making the shark the bully was not very original. Also, I didn't like that the main character tricked the shark when she was being mean. Two wrongs don't make a right and all that. If you're teaching kids a lesson, at least stick to that lesson.

Overall, a cute book, but not one that really interested me. I did enjoy the picture.

Billy, Brush Your Teeth! by Pamela Malcolm
Billy Brush Your Teeth: Funny Bedtime St... Billy Brush Your Teeth: Funny Bedtime Story for Children Kids (Billy Series Book 3) - Pamela Malcolm

Billy, Brush Your Teeth! by Pamela Malcolm is a fun to read book about a six-year old boy. It's written for children ages four to eight.

 

After his bath, Billy's mother tells him to brush his teeth. He begins daydreaming about his alien friends and doesn't brush them.

 

This happened for a few nights until Billy had a dream. I gave it four stars.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review.
