Say good night with Baby Night-night. See the teddy bear get ready for bed and the baby after his bath in this ideal first board book for your baby. Read along with your little one to share a special bedtime story and create a fun bedtime routine.

The Baby Sparkle series features appealing early-learning themes - bedtime, baby faces, animals, and more. Each title has six sparkly, double-page spreads, designed to attract babies in the youngest age group (0 - 6 months). With lots to encourage playful interaction between parent and child, including singsongy rhymes and animal noises, these stimulating first books are a joy to share, and filled with high-quality real-world baby learning.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is the last of the Baby Sparkle e-books our library had. It's also the weakest of the three I've read. There are fewer pictures of babies, and more pictures of boring things like lamps, mobiles, and stuffed animals. In fact, there are only two photographs of babies in the entire book.

I found the pictures in this one boring and the rhyme scheme seemed more like a suggestion at times than something the book was actually following.

I wouldn't recommend this one. There are plenty of better bedtime books out there.
