Brownie and Pearl Hit the Hay - Cynthia Rylant

Released September 2011

Simon and Schuster

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Another in the series of Brownie & Pearl books, this latest read-aloud story hopefully will get toddlers in the mood for bed. As the story begins, Brownie has her evening bath while Pearl licks her paws. Then it’s time to slip into jammies, grab a snack, and find a book to read. Pearl likes the book about kitties.

Once story time is over, the pair climb the stairs and snuggle up in Brownie’s big, comfortable bed. Then it is lights out and “nighty-night!”

Thanks to the simple text with short sentences, this book is ideal for beginning readers. The large, colorful illustrations also make “Hit the Hay” a good book for classroom reading sessions since the over-sized pictures will be easy for all the students in the group to see.
