Children's Book: Night Night, Sleepytown by Amy Parker Gives Thanks to Community Workers

What an adorable new children's book from Amy Parker.  The overall message is to thank the helpers in the community (officers, teachers, postman, etc), as well as God, for all they do to care of us.  I enjoy the rhythmic narrative and the bright illustrations.  It is a wonderful boardbook to read at bedtime to young children.

Night Night, Sleepytown (August 7, 2018, $9.99) joins Night Night, Farm and Night Night, Train as the latest ‘night night’ series book. Amy Parker is a bestselling author, who has sold more than 1 million books with HarperCollins Christian Publishing, is taking her sweet bedtime stories to the community.


Her newest release, Night Night, Sleepytown, hits shelves August 7. The book features darling illustrations of fire fighters, police officers, and citizens perusing around their neighborhood. Children are invited to say ‘night night’ to each town member.

“Sleepytown was actually a fictional town that my mom created,” shared Parker. “At bedtime, she would say, "Okay, it's time to go to Sleepytown." So, in Night Night, Train, naturally, the destination was Sleepytown. But we really didn't get a chance to explore the town. Then my agent said, "Hey, what about Night Night, Sleepytown?" So, now, we'll get to venture through the town that my mom created long ago, while celebrating all of the community helpers we meet along the way!”

Parker has become a favorite children’s author with both parents and children. Night Night, Sleepytown is a great way adults can teach their little ones about the various community jobs that help our town go round.
