Time for Bed
Meet joyful babies and toddlers in daily life. Introduces the concept of Lailah Tov, Good Night! "Warmly recommended" --The Sydney Taylor Schmooze
Drowsy babies and toddlers end their day with a sweet Lailah Tov--Good Night in this quiet rhyming board book featuring children and caregivers representing multipe ethnicities.
One of four in a series of board books that introduce the concepts of Boker Tov; Lailah Tov; Shabbat Shalom, and Shavua Tov.
The six full-page spreads in this upbeat board book show increasingly drowsy babies and toddlers getting ready for bed before wishing each other lailah tov (good night). The full-color illustrations and a handful of rhyming lines take the babies through bathtime, story reading, singing, and goodnight hugs and cuddles. The adults and children have white, brown and black skin, adding appreciated diversity to the book.
Time For Bed models a happy bedtime routine – including the Hebrew goodnight wishes – followed by a peaceful sleep. Babies and toddlers will enjoy its cheerful, comforting content, plus the opportunity to practice a sweet Hebrew phrase.
. . . a happy, reassuring introduction to books for and about Jewish children. Warmly recommended.
