I really enjoyed reading these bedtime stories. I wish my children were young enough for me to read to them. The tales are silly, sweet, and crazy enough to make a child laugh. Boogie Woogie Monkey and Other Bedtime Stories by Neil Roy McFarlane is a book to add to any child’s bedtime story collection. I feel children would enjoy the silliness of these stories and the life lessons that are snuck in at the end. You can never have too many books to read to your children. With enjoyable stories such as these to start with, children might enjoy reading more as they grow up. The cover is bright and eye catching, which is important because that is how a child picks a book. The pictures are silly and make you laugh. They are not professionally drawn, which adds character to the book.
My favorite story is When You Were Bigger Than The Universe. I work with pre-school age children and this would be a fun book to read during story time. The Path of Politeness would be great to include into a lesson plan. One of the stories, Boogie Woogie Monkey, had some words that might be hard for children of this age to understand, but the story was still enjoyable. Neil Roy McFarlane captures the imagination with Boogie Woogie Monkey and Other Bedtime Stories and sends the reader, and the listener, on an adventure they won’t forget so quickly. Unless, of course, they get bonked on the head.
