Storytime: Say Goodnight

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

 Today we read Say Goodnight

Say Goodnight is a very short bedtime story (the book contains 8 pages) that depicts the tumbling, fun-filled day activities of infants with their parents/caregivers. The bumpity bumpity day of play closes with a soft, loving wish to rest and sleep. The ending is easily changed so that parents can read, "Assalamu alaikum" instead of "Say Goodnight".

This book comes in a large board book version that makes it easy to read to infants and young toddlers. This version is larger than standard board book size but not too large that infants and toddlers will not be able to handle the book independently insha'Allaah. And the fact that the book is very short makes it a good read for young toddlers whose attention span is....short *smile*. The well-known Oxenbury babies are once again presented in real-life situations that many children will be very familiar with. This is a book that you may enjoy reading aloud as you prepare your child(ren) to end their day and prepare for bed...waallaahu a'lam.
