How Do You Sleep, Baby Dolphin? Review & Giveaway

Part of the boys' bedtime routine is to read a book or two.  I love the time we get to spend, and the adventures we go on.  I love reading books that offer more than entertainment, but sneaks in a bit of learning too.  I recently had the opportunity to review How Do You Sleep, Baby Dolphin? by Tamara Vellozzo.

How Do You Sleep, Baby Dolphin? is about a young child, who as he is getting tucked in with this favorite dolphin lovely, starts to wonder how real baby dolphins sleep.  He wonders things like does a baby dolphin brush his teeth or have a special blanket.  The baby dolphin then shares his own bedtime routine.  It’s completely adorable and Christopher, Jonathan, Nick and I all learned a bit about dolphins.  There is a short fact sheet on the last page that was great to interact and explore further conversation with the boys after we completed the story.  I was surprised to learn that dolphins can only hold their breath up to 20 minutes and Nick thought it was funny that baby dolphins nurse as well!

It is an enchanting, educational story with bright, colorful pictures and has become a favorite around our house..The boys absolutely love it!  How Do You Sleep, Baby Dolphin? would be a great addition to any home library, I know it has been to ours!

My daughter and I read different books each night. They are for school but she likes me to read to her. Thanks for the giveaway!

My daughters each pick out 1 book and we snuggle up and read them together. Now that my 6 year old is reading rather well, she likes to read to sissy and me. The slow reading helps put my 3 year old to sleep, too :D

My daughter is grown now, but I read to her until she was almost a teenager. She read behind her level and a specialist suggested I do the reading for her. It was a wonderful time for both of us.

My sons love their bedtime stories. At this age they love anything that has pictures.

We have certain times for bath and reading each night. Then if there is extra time, he can read his own book for a bit now that he is old enough!

I would like to win this for my grandson. We don't have a bedtime routine since he moved away to Philadelphia last summer. When he was here and would stay over we would have a nice bath, pajamas on, followed by reading books. Even though he is not here with me he loves to read his books. He should be out this summer. I would love to read this book to him and send it home with him. Thanks for the chance.

We usually read a book with the smaller kids and the older ones read on their own for a few minutes. It helps them wind down after the crazy day.
On a side note, my two youngest LOVE anything sea related. Mermaids, dolphins, etc. So this would be perfect for them!

the usual bedtime routine for my 3 yr old is dinner, bath, bruth the teeth, then read a book. Usually read "Go Dog Go"...I think she can recite each page :)

I don't have children yet, but I know when I was a kid I had about ten books that just had to be read to me before I would go to sleep. My Mom teases me about it because she thinks my child will be the same way.
