Good Night Baby Girl is an easy-to-read discovery book with simple, but colorful pictures. Written in rhyme by D.A. Batrowny, parents can end each day by reading with their baby. Developing rituals at bedtime should be part of a baby’s routine. Reading a familiar book each night may signal to a baby that the day is over and it is time to go to sleep. If teddy bear is ready to sleep, then baby should be, too. Reading with your baby can help with bonding, as well as building her communication skills. If a child hears a story enough times, they can finish a simple sentence if you stop reading and let them finish it.
Author D.A. Batrowny tells a simple, rhyming poem of the busy day coming to an end. Good Night Baby Girl is a warm story told with love. Simple illustrations that a baby can relate to, with colors that won’t stimulate your baby, help to tell the wonderful story. I really like the ending “The End of the story. The End of your great day!” because it signifies to baby that the book and the day are over, and you should go to sleep. It’s also a way of expressing thanks for the great day. D.A. Batrowny has created a book that is good for reading for babies and parents, but also first-time readers because the sentences are short and easy to read. Good Night Baby Girl is a building block to good communication skills and developing literacy fundamentals.
