Kiss Good Night by Amy Hest is the third Sam book I’m sharing in my cozy book series! Previously I wrote about Don’t You Feel Well, Sam? and You Can Do It, Sam, both books about a bear named Sam and his mother.
These are sweet stories especially for toddlers and preschoolers although we read them for a few years after that as well.
Kiss Good Night
It’s time for Sam to go to bed, but he’s waiting for something. Mrs. Bear does all of the special bedtime things with Sam, but he’s still waiting.
He’s waiting for his good-night kiss from his mother!
This book has gorgeous illustrations with rich colors. They are different from what I normally like in a book, but they just work so perfectly. The text is written in a different sing-song kind of way as it is in the other two Sam books. Amy Hest definitely has her own unique writing style.
I think almost all little ones would like Kiss Good Night read aloud to them. We read it over and over and over again when Caroline was little. I definitely recommend all three of the Sam books.
And if your child really loves the Sam books, check this out! I so wish we would have seen this when Caroline was little! She would have loved having a Sam bear to hold while we were reading and to play with along with her other stuffed animals.
I definitely recommend adding Kiss Good Night (and all the Sam books) to your home library.
