‘Charlie the Ranch Dog’ and ‘Bedtime for Mommy’ Children’s Books

by Alicia Lewis Murray on June 16, 2011

Charlie The Ranch Dog bookI bought Ree Drummand’s (aka THE Pioneer Woman) new children’s book for the kids. I got Ree’s love story for me, but let’s talk about the children’s book.

Charlie the Ranch Dog” is really cute with great illustrations. I love a kid’s book if the illustrations are well executed. Charlie delivers on this front. It’s also well-written and talks about a basset hound named Charlie, who lives on cattle ranch, and how “busy” he gets … usually he’s busy taking naps. My kind of life.

My 5 year old loved it and actually got some of the humor. My two year old liked the pictures. We’ve read this book several times already and really enjoy it.

When I was at the bookstore I happened across another children’s book with an amazing cover and picked it up right away. I wanted to be the woman on the cover, hands raised, feet in the air … it’s bedtime! Hooray!

Bedtime for Mommy bookBedtime for Mommy,” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal is super sweet tale of a little girl putting her mommy to bed. What a wonderful concept. Can you imagine having to go to bed. To be read a story. To be in bed at a decent time, and to be able to sleep as long as you want? Sounds glorious.

As I’m posting this I see a theme … maybe I need a nap!
