Not only does Time For Bed, Sleepyhead The Falling Asleep Book by Daniel G. Amen M.D. Have the most gorgeously illustrated pages, thanks to Gail Yerrill, but the slow, melodic story will have both your child and you yawning by the end of the book.
This is not the first time that I have heard of books similar to this one, it is a book that is psychologically proven to create a dreamy and sleep air around your child, with intricate phrases, and provoked yawns, you will both be heavy lidded as you read about the little polar bear cub and his best friends on their fun trip.
As you read about the adventures, the mommy in the story tells her little cub to listen to other noises, and every time one should be heard, it should make that little cub feel more and more relaxed, and it does work. Every time there is a tap or a crinkle, it makes you feel like you just want to close your eyes. To me, this was almost like an ASMR book. If you know me, you know that I have loved watching ASMR videos on youtube for quite some time, and to have a book that almost creates the same effects, especially for my child, was an incredible dream come true.
Even though this book made my son sleepy, he loved to look at the pictures and find all the different animals, and he also loved how the story progressed, and then all the little animals went to sleep “like me” he said. We had so much fun reading this, it has definitely become part of our nightly routine. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars, and a sleepy yawn. I received this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
