Night Night Sweet Dreams Review
I got the Forever Friends Night Night Sweet Dreams book on review the other day and, I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting much at all. I am always a bit sceptical about branded products that move into bedding and furniture, or from bedding and furniture into characters.
This particular book is something of an exception. It made me cry. Yes, yes it did. Now I am aware that ever since I’ve had my child I’ve been a real soft touch. I can cry in adverts, at shopping centres, at puppies, and when my child does something wonderful. If it is touching, lovely, human, full of warmth and feels wonderful, then I will probably get a bit tearful.
This book is all about one little baby bear who refuses to go to sleep so his mummy explains to him why sleep is so important. The thing is, the gorgeous illustrations make you just want to HUG the book, and the story is really well written.
The writer is one talented lady because she swept me away. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read a children’s book and thought, “Wow, that’s horrible. How on Earth did they get published?” This book did not make that happen. Instead it made me want to go to sleep because I wanted to have those dreams.
It’s the rich and vivid descriptions of the adventures you can have while you’re asleep that got me. And Breakfast Bay that beckons with hot buttered toast. YUM. The bit that made me cry was at the end because mummy bear was all about love and cuddles and security. Sniff.
If you do go forth and get this book, I advise you to read it last because it is very calming and relaxing.
