Description from Publisher:
When a dark night comes to the big city, one little super hero prepares for a great adventure... bedtime! He dons his pajama uniform, speeds upstairs, cleans up the nightly grime, and keeps watch from his towering bunk bed. Written by award-winning author Michael Dahl (Goodnight Baseball, Goodnight Football, and Goodnight Hockey) and illustrated by Ethen Beavers (DC Super Friends), this bedtime tale will have Batman fans, young and old, delighting in their nightly routines. Bedtime for Batman is the perfect way to say goodnight to your little Dark Knight.
My Rating:
My Musings:
My son (3.5) was incredibly happy to see Batman, and the kid who was "trying to be" Batman. :) Each scene of this juxtaposes part of a kid's bedtime ritual with what Batman does at night. The Bat signal and Dad pointing at the clock, getting dressed in pajamas (Batman PJs, of course, with cape) and Bruce Wayne getting into his batsuit. Very clever idea! The text is simple, but still written well to caption each scene. The illustrations are very fitting and the "real world" and Batman's world are tied together wonderfully.

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher for an honest, unbiased review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is my 100% own.
