… Day 11 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.
‘It was a dark and stormy night on Plum Street …’ so starts Kiss Goodnight Sam by Amy Hest and my book choice for Day 11 of the #AtoZfavbooks challenge. (You wouldn’t believe how good I’m getting typing #AtoZfavbooks!)
This is a wonderful bedtime story that is a firm favourite in our house.
Mrs Bear is putting Sam to bed. She follows all his usual bedtime routines; drinking milk, tucking him in and arranging his friends under the covers etc. But Sam still isn’t ready to go to sleep. What has Mrs Bear forgotten? Why, Sam’s kiss goodnight, of course 🙂
The illustrations are warm and inviting and the text is gentle and fun. My grandson’s favourite line in the book is after Mrs Bear finally remembers and ‘bends down, kissing Sam once and twice and then twice more’ and Sam shouts, ‘Again!’ “Again” became a line we had to repeat a lot.
Your little one will definitely have sweet dreams after reading this book.
