Night-Night

By

In Night-Night, author Cynthia MacGregor tackles one of the biggest challenges of parenthood--tucking a child into bed. Every parent has experienced the countless excuses and delays of a child resisting bedtime, from needing another drink of water to fearing monsters lurking in the dark. In Night-Night, MacGregor presents a fun assortment of creative solutions to transform bedtime from a battle into a special bonding experience for parents and their children.
Beautifully illustrated and filled with suggestions for storytime activities, quiet games, and playful songs and rhymes, Night-Night will turn bedtime into a special part of the day. There are activities to help develop language and number skills and activities that will inspire cognitive and creative thinking, as well as suggestions on how to help children relax. Instead of reading a book, MacGregor suggests telling personal stories tailored to the child's individuality, such as tales about when the child was little or adventures the parent had as a child. She also proposes activities to make bedtime more exciting, such as playing hokey-pokey to get under the covers and making up rhymes to accompany the actions of snuggling into bed.
