Currently with the Common Core Standards there is a push towards introducing nonfiction to young readers. Getting Ready For Bed by Mary Lindeen, is an emerging reader book designed to assist the early elementary student in developing their reading skills. With a defined set of frequently used sight vocabulary plus several common content words, the young child, after repeated readings with their parents, should be able to read the text independently.

What I like about this book is the way it models the bedtime procedure. It actually starts with the family dinner after which the children assist in cleaning up and doing age appropriate chores. There is a set aside play time with clean up, bath time, changing into pajamas, a healthy bedtime snack, brushing of teeth, and a nighttime story. The illustrations are photographs of all sorts of children representing different races. In this way, the reader can not only identify themselves in the book, but also realize that bedtime procedures are common to all cultures. At the end of the book are some suggested extension activities for parents to do with their children in order to enhance the reading process. Please note, the simplicity of the text will only appeal to young elementary age children who are just beginning to read independently, although it could also be used as a read-a-loud for preschoolers in order to reinforce bedtime procedures.

My only complaint is that the book idealizes family life with two parents and happy, smiling children who willingly follow directions. As I said, this book models appropriate behaviors, it doesn't represent the reality of normal family dynamics. Three and a half stars. NetGalley user, September 2015

This is a cute little book about what a child's routine looks like from sitting down to dinner until lights out. It is a beginning basal reader that had realistic pictures to accompany the words. The text is short, perfect for emerging readers. The routines are probably similar to what the child reading this book goes through. This would be a great companion book to "It's Bedtime, Dear Dragon" by the same publisher. At the end of the book there are activities a teacher or caregiver could do with the reader as well as a list of words used in the book. 4/5 Stars. NetGalley user, August 2015

Getting Ready for Bed is a simple non-fiction book that walks you through a bedtime routine. Non-fiction books are always hard to find for the first/second grade level and this book is perfect! 5/5 stars NetGalley user, August 2015

I like this book and I love the illustrations with the appealing, brightly coloured dragon. The vocabulary and sentence structure is great, the activities and evening routine very real. It would have been better if 'this' was used less - used as a substitute for vocabulary for which the young reader is not yet prepared.  There is nothing which is American-only, so I will look to buy this for my English school.  NetGalley user, August 2015
