Book Review: A Bedtime Yarn

A Bedtime Yarn by Nicola Winstanley

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Balls of Yarn

Recommends for readers of Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney

As a mother of three reluctant sleepers, I can appreciate mother bear's efforts to comfort her little one. She has a wonderful idea to let her son hold a ball of yarn she is knitting from to connect them while he falls asleep. He has beautiful dreams with vibrant colors, the same as the yarn. A Bedtime Yarn is a lovely story with gentle parenting. The illustrations add so much to the story and I adore the yarn winding around the pages. If you know someone who is afraid to sleep by themselves, try reading this book. It takes such a gentle and comforting approach. If you knit, I would definitely try the actual approach as well.
