From the Publisher

The stars are out. The moon is rising. All the baby animals, from peacocks to pigs to zebras, are ready for bed. Will you tuck them in and say good night? Just turn the pages and the big inviting flaps that serve as blankets cover each little creature up to its chin. This simple but endlessly satisfying novelty, with its array of goggle-eyed baby animals, bold patterns, and vibrant colors, is sure to be the book of choice for little ones everywhere, night after night. Who needs to be tucked in? Turn each page until all baby animals–and little readers–are cozy and ready for sleep in this irresistible bedtime ritual.

About the Author

Dean Hacohen began his career as a copywriter at an ad agency, where he met Sherry Scharschmidt, his first art director partner. He says that in advertising, experimenting with different configurations of elements can lead to interesting ideas–which is what sparked the notion of using book pages as blankets. He lives in White Plains, New York.

About the Illustrator

Sherry Scharschmidt has worked as an art director in agencies from New York to Tokyo. She is also a painter whose rebus-style works feature cats or dogs combined with salvaged sign letters. She now lives and works in Chicago.

My Thoughts

Josiah, my 3-year-old, absolutely loves books and welcomes any book to add to his bookshelf. Each night, at bedtime, Josiah and I read two books before lights-out. Tuck Me In was perfect for our bedtime routine because it’s all about tucking in the cute little animals to go to sleep. Lastly, of course, the child get’s tucked in.

hedgehogI think the bright colors and illustrations immediately attracted Josiah to the book. He couldn’t wait to open it. He had to show me all the animals in the book and even learned about a new animal, the hedgehog! He talked about the hedgehog for a week and, I have to admit, he was the cutest of them all. What I really like about the book is the ability for the child to interact, flipping the blanket pages to tuck in each animal. It’s perfect for ages 1.5 years to 4 years old when children are trying to become more independent and do more for themselves. He could read this book every night (and we have) without it getting old.

Tuck Me In is a great book to integrate into a bedtime routine. It gets little ones settled down and ready to get tucked in, too. Though, I could see smaller children possibly ripping the blanket pages if they aren’t careful. They will definitely need some help, but, at 3, Josiah could do it easily.  However, it is a hardback so, it can withstand clumsy hands on the outside! Your little ones will definitely get a kick out of this fun book!
