Picture Book Review: Bedtime for Batman

Bedtime for Batman by Michael Dahl, pictures by Ethen Beavers

Review by Lauren

source: copy for review: all opinions are my own

Official SummaryWhen 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!

This picture book came out in August, but I think it's a really suitable book for October as Halloween is fast approaching! Perhaps the little one in your life wants to dress up as Batman or Batgirl this year! This would be the perfect nighttime story to prepare them for the big night out, trick-or-treating!

What do you think? Know any Batman lovers that would enjoy this book?

My 3 year old would love this. Actually, I am pretty sure the older siblings wouldn't mind "reading it to her" either :)
