Book Review - Goodnight, Stinky Face
About the Book
Stinky Face always has a lot of questions, and his patient mama always has the right answers! This time, Stinky Face is having trouble going to sleep in his own bed, and asks if he can sleep with her. After all, the water from the drippy faucet could sweep him away at any moment! But just like in previous stories, Mama knows how to reassure her Stinky Face to let him know that she's right there, even when he's sleeping.
My Take on the Book
Lisa Mc Court has written a sturdy board book for children. I would not say this is a board book for babies, but it is one young children will enjoy.
The child in the story does not want to go to bed and begins to make up scenarios hoping to convince his mom to let him sleep with her. I truly enjoyed reading the remarks the wise and patient mother made in the story. For each incident the child created, the mother had a positive comment. The story progressed to a happy ending and bedtime was imminent.
Lisa Mc Court understands children and their creative minds when it comes to stalling bedtime.
Cyd Moore's illustrations show the emotions of the characters so well. The illustrations have great details and beautiful soft colors which are perfect for this particular story.
I think you and your child will enjoy reading this story together.
