There’s a duck on your head.
I think that this means
you are ready for bed.

We just don't have enough fun in our world today. So thank heavens for Sandra Boynton who pops out these wonderful, clever, and completely silly stories for the very youngest of our world.

This little board book has a bear dad singing his little bear child to sleep with a wacky song, a song so random that it just may inspire parents to create their own personal zany off-to-bed tune.

First sentence: Your pajamas are on. There’s a duck on your head. I think that this means you are ready for bed.

Premise/plot: Calling all zoodles and noodles, it’s bedtime! This is a reprint of a book originally published in 1997. If you’re not familiar with Sandra Boynton’s work, this would be a great one to start with!

My thoughts: I enjoyed this one. I did. It isn’t unusual for bedtime stories to feature lullabies. This one features a very silly lullaby full of silly words and mix-ups.

So cute! I loved it and so did my grandson. Full of fun rhymes that make you giggle. A great story for bedtime.

Boynton is a hit with toddlers, and this is another charming book that makes it easy to see why. SILLY LULLABY is full of delightful nonsense. The book contains a song that is a completely ridiculous lullaby, with the chickens in the bathtub, a closet full of sheep, and sneakers in the freezer. The book contains the musical bars to allow you to follow the made up tune. If, like me, you are out of practice at reading music, you can listen to the song (or download it) from sillylullaby dot com. ...more

Silliness hits high in this sweet little lullaby which makes absolutely little sense and will have those tired eyes happily ready for bed time.

This is a short, cute and absolutely ridiculous book. The first line might sound normal, but already with the second, nonsense starts and will have kids saying 'huh?' before diving into a world of giggles, snorts and nonsense. When the lullaby really gets underway, it starts with an accompanying tune, written out for those who might be ready to sing this

This book begins "Your pajamas are on. There's a duck on your head. I think that this means you are ready for bed." The silliness that follows will not surprise Boynton fans. In the middle is a gibberish lullaby that may just be the song your little ones insist on hearing every single night for months to come. Boynton is back with another delightful board book full of goofy words, cheerful animals (including my favorites - the chickens) and a book that your toddler will want to read again and ...more

I like this book because of the part with "I love you, Fitsy Foo," and also I like the part where it shows the shows in the fridge all drifting off to sleep? And I like the part too where there's chickens in the bathtub and a closet full of sheep. "Goodnight, Fitsy Foo."

Even if you think your can't carry a tune, kids don't care. Sing this super silly lullaby with your little ones before they outgrow your lap!

Super cute and silly! Sure to be a bedtime favorite!
I was halfway guessing at the tune since I'm not great at reading music while also reading words, but this is very cute. I several lines made both my son and I giggle.

My kids are always a Sandra fan. I'll have to look up how the song actually goes online, because I am guessing I was off. ...more
My toddler is a big fan of Sandra Boynton, but I think this book was a little confusing for her.
