Bedtime for Baby 10, 9, 8...Owls Up Late!

Disclosure: Many thanks to MM Publicity for the opportunity to review this book.
I was thrilled to receive 10, 9, 8... Owls Up Late! By Georgianna Deutsch and illustrated by Ekaterina Trukhan.  The book is perfect for preschoolers ages: 3 - 5 and a perfect read for our Bedtime for Baby Book Reviews.  
I love books that helps reemphasize learning skills particularly for toddlers and preschoolers.  Their little minds are always itching to learn more.

My niece runs a daycare and my great nephew is one of her best students.  He's such a fantastic counter and he knows all of his ABCs.  We put him on the spot every time he comes to visit to wow us with his skills and he gets a little shy sometimes.  Truth is he's smart like his mom.  I remember when she about 9 or 10 and she could recite the longest poems.  There was something about the rhythmic flow of the words that she just embraced and for the life of me I can't recall the name of this one poem she would recite over and over.  I was so enamored by the authority and confidence in her voice when she spoke the words in that poem.  
That's one of the reasons I love this Bedtime for Baby book selection.  The rhythmic text is jovial and it's fun to read and when the kids hear the smile in your voice, they tend to focus on it.  When they're focused on it, guess what... they're learning.

Ten little owls are playing in a tree,
hopping and hooting happily.
But Mama Owl calls from down in the nest,
“It’s bedtime now; it’s time to rest.”

Peek through the pages and spot the mischievous owls in this fun counting book, perfect for bedtime! 

The board book is 26 pages so it's one of those books you can read in one sitting or split it up over the course of a few nights. 
The book is available at stores nationwide including Walmart, Target, Amazon and more.

What are/were some of your favorite books to read to your little ones?

My newest grandbaby is only 6 months old, but I'm already buying him lots of books and this one sure looks like a winner. I need to grab it for him.

Going to have to tell my daughter about this book so she can get it and read it to her little ones. We are all readers in our family. This is perfect.

This sounds like a great book to read to kids. I always read to mine when they were tiny. We read a lot of Dr. Seuss and Goodnight Moon.

It sounds like this would be a great book for toddlers. My nephew and niece are both toddlers and I think they would get a lot out of this book. I might have to buy for their birthday.

How cute does this book sound for little ones, it looks like it so colourfully illustrated as well!

I thought the illustrations in the book were so much fun for children. Owls are a great wise bird so i think kids will love this.
I love to read, I always have since I was a child. We still have books here from when my kids were very young, they loved Dr Seuss.
This is a book that I bet my kids would have loved as toddlers. It looks super cute.

That books sounds really fun to read especially during bed time. I do like books that keep a child's mind active! We were all about the different disney story books when my daughter was younger.

Book reading was part of our routine when my kids were little. NOw that they are bigger, my daughter read books when she can't fall asleep.
My kids love reading and getting new books. This one sounds just lovely and like my littler kiddos would really enjoy! - Jeanine

This sounds like an excellent book series! I definitely should get this for my youngest daughter. She just turned three and is currently not a big fan of bedtime.

Apparently there's a coin shortage.  Signs are posted in the storefront windows everywhere saying "COIN SHORTAGE - EXACT CHANGE".   The pandemic has definitely affected our pockets and we are looking for ways to maximize our income without having to tap into our savings. Learning to budget can be a daunting task but knowing where you spend your hard earned money is the first step.  There are lots of books available to help get you started.  Currently, I'm reading The 30-Minute Money Plan for Moms by Catey Hill.  Financial expert Catey Hill shows moms how to spend less and save big in this savvy guide where each step is designed to take 30 minutes max.   Let’s face it, kids are expensive–in 24 states, daycare actually costs more than in-state college tuition! And the older kids get, the more you will spend. Every mom could use more money. But who has hours to search for coupons just to save a few dollars? And sure, you know you should learn how to get the most o

Come Out & Play BUT Let's Practice Social Distancing

Come Out & Play  BUT Remember   To   Practice Social Distancing COVID-19, Coronavirus, Da Rona, whatever you're calling it has definitely changed all of our lives.  Families are spending more and more time together.  My husband teases me saying I've spent more time in the backyard since March than I have in the entire 15 years we've lived in our home.  Sad thing is... he's right. We planted a garden.  It was kinda by chance.  I bought these seeds and this starter compost.  Put them near the kitchen and after about a week or so, I started noticing gnats in my kitchen.  I figured it was some of the fresh fruit gone bad.  Tossed the fruit. Wiped everything down.  Gnats were gone.  A few days later... the gnats returned.  FINALLY figured out it that I had this dirt near the kitchen and remembered "Oh, you were going to start gardening."   Seeds planted.  Watered.  Now we wait.  It'll be a few weeks but I am so looking forward to cutting fresh spinach and
