Bedtime Stories (week 28 – 2015)

This week we’ve had the absolute pleasure of reviewing a book designed especially for bedtime! Adam, over at the blog ItsAdamAgain wrote this for his son, Matthew. Matthew stars in this story all about the mysterious Shnugglefluffles.

Where do Shnugglefluffles live

The illustrations in this book are simple and clear. I love that it’s black text on white pages, or vice versa, as we often read by the light of a GroLight or simply through blacked out curtains, so easy to read typeface is my preference.

James has loved this book. I think a little bit too much, actually, because seeing the Shnugglefluffles has become a bit of a delaying tactic to falling asleep. In order to see a Shnugglefluffle, you have to go through a number of steps, including lying very still, giving a kiss, and counting to ten.

Hearing James counting in his sleepy little voice is the cutest thing ever! He actually counts to ten, then 11, 12, 14, 16, 14, 16, then declares that he hasn’t seen a Shnugglefluffles so we start the process again!

Adam reports that it isn’t the super sleep inducing hit with Matthew he thought it would be, either! However, it is really cute and a very calming book.

Adam has plans for a book starring a girl next (something you want to share with us, Adam?!) , and you can be sure it will be cute and fun as this one is.

    What a fun looking book. I agree with the bold letters for bedtime books. I’m usually so tired by the time I’m reading bedtime books that I need the extra help. I’ll have to check this one out soon.

    If you are interested, I’d love for you to join my weekly link up, we share any post that shares what is on our hearts, minds and bookshelves. I think you’d be a great addition to our little community.

    If you want to stop by on Thursday morning and join the community.

    Thanks again for sharing this adorable book.

      Adam needs to share it more widely, I think!

    This looks a lovely book – right up our street 😀 – Monkey has been having trouble settling at bedtime (something to do with being 3?) I am sure a book like this would help!! Thank you #ToddlerAprovedTuesday.

      Oh my goodness I know that problem! James is not yet three but there’s something definitely going on!

      You’re so right Chantelle, it’s the interest in books we want (though sleep would be an amazing added bonus). x
