Review: Night Night Farm
Amy Parker's children's books have sold more than 800,000 copies, and after reading Night Night Farm I can see why. Parker was also the recipient of two Christian Retailing's Best award-winning books and the bestselling A Night Night Prayer.
This particular book visits each of the different animals on the farm and prepares them for their night of sleep.
A trot to the orchard and back
For apples crisp and sweet
leaves fuzzy foal all tuckered out,
Asleep at Daddy's feet.
Neigh neigh, horses.
And the last page ties the whole book together as all the animals say goodnight to God.
Mice and pigs, chickens and cows --
Squeak, oink, cheep, and moo ...
Oh, the animals God has made!
And, hey, He made me too!
Night night God!
I, of course, especially love this book because we have our own farm. A great inclusion for our farm library. But even if you don't have a farm, this is a great book for your library. Made of the awesome "plush" cover that I love with sturdy board pages, this book will stand up to even the craziest of toddlers!
