Bedtime for Batman cover

Bedtime for Batman, Michael Dahl, Capstone Young Readers, 2016.

In our house, when the sky turns dark, there is a little super hero who needs to prepare for the greatest adventure of the day . . . . bedtime! We have an arsenal of books we read to Baby J at bedtime, many of which are bedtime themed books.

In this bedtime story book, the super hero too has to prepare for bedtime. The little boy gears up in his pajama uniform, hurries upstairs to clean up the nightly filth, and he keeps watch from his perch on his bunk bed. Each couple of pages mirrors what the boy is doing to prepare for bedtime and what Batman is doing to prepare for his nightly patrol of Gotham.


The illustrations by Ethen Beavers are bright, colorful, and engaging. Written by Michael Dahl, this book is ideal for children ages 4-7, though Baby J enjoyed. Or, at least, Daddy did.

Bedtime for Batman is scheduled to be released in August 2016. You can order your copy by clicking on the image below:
