Bedtime, Not Playtime!

 My daddies read my favourite book.
I know it by heart - no need to look!

A young girl is getting ready for bed when her puppy tries to play. First Rex brings his ball over, but she ignores him. Then he crashes story time, but she still doesn’t give in! Finally, as a last resort, Rex steals her teddy and the chase is on! Under the table, over the chair, her daddies give chase and, at last, rescue the bear. Now it’s really time for bed! Goodnight, Rex.

Pairs well with Early One Morning


Alphabet Team Review

This is the sweetest bedtime story with a little girl, the family dog and her two dads! Dads are both tired, but the small human and Rex the pup are not. The illustrations are bright and colourful, quirky and cute. Depicting a same-sex family was enough to get this book banned in a few places, but we think it is worth celebrating here in Aotearoa-New Zealand!
