Official Summary: When a dark night comes to the big city, one little super hero prepares for a great adventure . . . bedtime! He dons his pajama uniform, speeds upstairs, cleans up the nightly grime, and keeps watch from his towering bunk bed.
Review: Bedtime for Batman is such a cute picture book! I know a friend of mine who has a little boy that would LOVE this, so I'll have to invest in a finished copy. It's a really simple story about getting ready for bed but what makes it so exciting is that on the opposite page, or underneath the picture of the young boy, you see Batman himself doing something similar. For example, when the unnamed boy puts on his pajamas, the Dark Knight is donning his Batman costume. It's such a cute idea and I know many nerdy parents that would love to share such a bedtime story with their young ones. If I had my own kids, I'd read this every night. Regardless, I'll just spoil my nieces and nephew, and friend's kids, with books like these!
What do you think? Know any Batman lovers that would enjoy this book?
