Princess Baby, Night-Night by Karen Katz

Princess Baby, Night-Night by Karen Katz

Last year Karen Katz introduced us to the sassy, sparkly-shoe and crown-wearing Princess Baby who hated being called any other name than her real name. No "cupcake" or "little lamb" for her. You can find my review of that book here.

Well, now Princess Baby is back. It's bedtime, but she's not quite ready for bed. All of her stuffed animals must but on their pajamas, brush their teeth, and read a book (or two, or three). Parents of young children will find the scenario familiar as Princess Baby does everything she can think of to stall bedtime, and little children will definitely get a laugh out of her antics. The satisfying ending may even entice your little ones to go to sleep.

I can tell you first hand that my daughter, who is almost two, has loved Princess Baby since the day the first book arrived, and she was super excited to see the newest one. With the new book, the colorful illustrations and the familiar situations in her own bedtime routine. Both of the Princess Baby books have been read multiple times in our house, and I hope to see more in the future. I think they'd make the perfect baby shower gift or birthday gift for a young little girl.

  1. Well, it looks super cute! I'll keep these titles in mind, thanks!

  2. This does look cute! I have a few princesses of my own who might like this!

  3. I always like to buy a book for my cousin's daughter for her brithday. I have a 6 yo boy who is ALL BOY and she is a Princess personified so I need all the help I can get! This looks like a great one for her!

  4. My 2 1/2 year old loves this book. She loves each picture and we "talk" through the story. It would make a great gift (baby shower (if baby is known to be a girl), birthday or just because).

  5. Oooh-- that looks like it's right up my 2 year old's alley!!
