Max at Night by Ed Vere

This is Max. Max is very sleepy. It’s way past Max’s bedtime. Max has drunk his milk. Max has brushed his teeth. Max has cleaned behind his ears. Now Max just needs to say goodnight…
Max is tired and all ready for bed, but when he can’t find the moon to say goodnight to, he sets out to find it. But that’s not as easy as Max had hoped… Witty and heart-warming, this stylish and beautifully illustrated book is the perfect bedtime read.


I would just like to preface this by saying that I have a Max, so this was an especially enjoyable book for our family!

Max at Night is a very cute bedtime story about a kitten named Max who is desperate to say goodnight to the moon. It is simple and sweet and long enough to engage a child before bed, but not too long that the parents reading it will get frustrated (I know those books well!).

The illustrations are simple and the colors are vibrant. I think there is something to be said about a minimal pictures is a book, especially before bedtime. It’s not overstimulating and the children are able to focus on listening to the story instead of looking at all the pictures.

We will definitely be incorporating this into our bedtime routine!

3.5 out of 5 stars
