The Bedtimeasnaurus by Bike Bayliss - Review

I received this book free from the publisher. All opinions are my own

Book description
A charming collection of gorgeously illustrated poems to encourage fun and bedtime bonding between parents and their children.

The bright pink flamingoasaurus spends its day standing on one leg looking for something to eat. The round and delicious tomotoasaurus sings a tune while soaking up the sun. These are just two of the imaginative and amusing dinosaurs dreamed up in The Bedtimeasnaurus, the sometimes naughty and always hilarious poetry collection for children by Mike Bayliss.

Developing the idea for over thirty years while working on other projects , Bayliss was encouraged to publish his collection after being diagnosed with stage IV non - Hodgkin lymphoma in April 2017, using his work as a positive outlet for his energy as he worked to battle the illness.

Complimented by charming illustrations, opportunities for kids to draw their own dinosaur creations and simple quizzes on each of the characters, The Bedtimeasnaurus not only provides an entertaining read for young children before they go to sleep but also offers a valuable chance for parents to connect and engage.

My thoughts
This is a fun colorful book that you can enjoy with your little one. This makes bedtime a fun part of the day for everyone.  Each of the poems were fun to read over and over again. The illustrator did a good job with the drawings. I loved the bright colors and all the fun animals. This is a must have for your child's collection.
