Children’s Corner: Nighty Night Narwhal

10 Mar

In this sweet, humorous tale about an imaginative narwhal named Nolan, children and parents alike will giggle at, and likely recognize, all of Nolan’s excuses for avoiding bedtime. With soothing, rhyming text and whimsical, playful illustrations, this charming padded board book is sure to help little ones go from deep sea silliness to sweet, soothing dreams.

Nolan the Narwhal tries to go to sleep. He really does. But he’s thirsty … and hungry … and there might be a giant sea horse in the closet … or under the bed … and his eyes won’t stay shut … and his horn is achy … and all the blankets are too hot … but no blankets are too cold … and maybe one more song would help … and one more story … that’s it! One more story and Nolan promises to go to bed.

 

My Impressions: 

Nighty Night Narwhal is another cute edition to your bedtime repertoire! Your child will discover they have a lot in common with Nolan the Narwhal — he thinks up all kinds of things to avoid going to bed! I loved the whimsical illustrations of a narwhal’s world, and the interactions between Nolan and his parents. It also spurred me to know more about this fascinating creature — your child (and you) will want to know more too! This is a great book for the preschool set!
