Too cute!

A rhyming, bedtime story about God's underwater creations. Kids will love the beautiful illustrations.

A must for those children who will not go to bed without a story.

A wonderfully lyrical bedtime story! In a similar vein as “Goodnight Moon,” “Night Night, Ocean” is a short but extremely sweet children’s book that is perfect for any bedtime ritual. Introducing various ocean creatures, the author, Amy Parker takes children on an ocean adventure with a little manatee. As the manatee swims along the ocean it comes across sea horses, fish, sharks, turtles, and many others getting ready for bedtime. As the manatee swims by, it says good night to each creature it passes. The end of the book reminds us that God is the One who made everything and everybody! “Night Night, Ocean” is beautifully illustrated with vibrant colors and cute animals that will appeal to the littlest of children. I thank NetGalley and Thomas Nelson: Children’s for the ARC of this book. I am not required to give a positive review. All opinions within this review are my own.

Night Night, Ocean is the perfect bedtime book for toddlers and preschoolers. The illustrations are colorful and adorable. We follow along as manatees say good night to all their ocean creature friends. I love the sweet little rhymes. This book would make the perfect gift for young children who may struggle with settling down for bedtime.

Thank you to NetGalley and Thomas Nelson: CHILDREN'S for allowing me to be an early reader. All opinions are my own.

My 6 month old son LOVES Amy Parker’s Night Night series. We have several, and when I saw Ocean was coming out, we preordered it! When I saw it on NetGalley I was excited to get to help get the word out about these great children’s books.

Night Night Ocean has the beautiful illustrations we love and the sweet faith message that God has made us all wonderfully unique - like the diverse animals of the sea. My son especially liked the illustration of the shark brushing his teeth! Mommy liked the manatee learning he is wonderfully made, just like all the other creatures.

All the stars for Night Night Ocean- it’s sure to become a new favorite in our house.

I received a complementary copy of the ebook version of this story through the publisher and NetGalley. Eagerly awaiting the copy of our preordered board book. My opinions are my own and I was not asked to leave a positive review.

It was a fun, quick read . The kids loved the animals , the art work and the fun descriptions of under the sea .

Thank you to Netgalley for the free download in exchange for an unbiased review .
