"Children will enjoy reading this book and will want to read it again and again. I would definitely recommend this book to all young readers."Readers' Favorite (5 STARS)

"Charming picture book ... Beautifully illustrated with an evocative text, it has kind messages about scary night-times and will encourage children to practise their counting."The Bookbag (4 STARS)

My review 

I love this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the picture book to my children. I found it engaging and entertaining and they certainly agreed. Great for maths and counting, I would find multiples uses for this book in the classroom too. The illustraions are fantastic and kept both children, including my youngest who is not yet two, involved with the story.

With a great ending that I should have seen coming, but didn't! I was enjoying the journey and experience too much. My son loved the book just as much as I did and regularly asks to have it read to him. I would recommend this picture book for children.

About the author

Marion Adams has been writing for as long as she can remember, usually for fun and sometimes for money as well. She started her career as an in-house copywriter with a publisher and now works as a freelance proofreader and editor. It’s her dream job because she’s paid to read all day (and eat dark chocolate). Over the years, she’s written all kinds of things for both adults and children, some serious and some less so, with published work including magazine stories, articles, poems, plays and non-fiction books.

She has two children who are grown up now, but they still remember having their favourite stories read to them at bedtime. So Marion decided it was about time she wrote a bedtime story with a title that’s sure to resonate with weary parents everywhere: Go To Sleep!
Marion lives in Devon, UK, and when she’s not reading or writing (or eating dark chocolate), she loves going for walks on the wild moors where Go To Sleep! is set.
