“Put on Your PJs, Piggies!” by Tommy Nelson and illustrated by Sydney Hanson is a delightful book for kids 0-3—my barely one-year-old is smitten by this book in a way that he is not by any other and raptly listens to and looks at each page! The hard cover has glitter and a top cutout for fun and effect.
The story follows three piggies (and a stuffed animal piggie) as their Daddy calls them to bed. The moon is rising, but the piggies want a snack! And they need a bath! And they need, of course, to put on their PJs . . . . They say their prayers then head to bed, snuggled warmly in the barn’s hay. It is a sweet and silly book that will have kids smiling and giggling as they think of their own bedtime routine and as they watch these piggies eventually fall asleep.
The paintings are soft and engaging, and the rhyme flows effortlessly, make the book a pleasure to read and look at.
A reference is made on the first page to Bedtime Barn, and a matching name is on the back of the book. So, this book is part of a series: Bedtime Barn. One odd thing about the book: it says “Our day on Bedtime Barn was fun.” Doesn’t quite make sense to me.
Overall, mainly because for some mysterious reason my baby is glued to this book . . . I recommend it! It is a sweet, flowy rhyme and precious illustrations.
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze®. I was not required to write a positive review.
