Night Noises by Lisa Beere is an adorable storybook for kids where they see a little boy getting ready for bed. He is wearing his favorite pajamas, and after that he goes to the bathroom and brushes his teeth. He then goes to the living room to tell everyone that he is ready for bed. He gives a goodnight kiss to everyone there and goes to his bedroom, holding his mother’s hand. Once the lights are switched off and his mother leaves the room, the little boy hears noises and he cannot sleep. First he yells for his mother, then for his dad, and after that for his grandpa. Will the little boy finally be able to get to sleep? Read the story to find out!

The essence of the story is good; it highlights the importance of family in a child’s life, and speaks about kindness and night fears. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they breathe life into the characters and the scenes. It is a good bedtime storybook, especially for those kids who have difficulty in getting to sleep at night. The book can be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries as many of the children will be able to relate well to the little boy and sleep issues. The story is simple but real and relatable to many kids and parents out there. The author handles a relevant topic with some nice characters and wonderful illustrations that will capture the attention of young readers.

The various noises throughout this book and the anticipation of a family member flicking on the light will capture the attention and imagination of young children.
This book would also appeal to those with hearing issues who could purchase this book for a child as a tool to discussing hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis.
Also… Lynn Costelloe did an amazing job on these illustrations!
Look for "I'm Running Away!" the next book which deals with Sam sharing the spotlight as a new big brother. Coming soon!
