Review and Giveaway: Shushybye Sleepover Surprise book & CD CLOSED

Just before Wiggle’s first birthday we started sleep training because I was ready to get more that 3 hours sleep at a time.  The first step was setting a routine (and sticking to it!).  I have read countless studies showing the benefits of reading to your children every day.  For this reason, we made story time a part of our nightly routine.  Story time is followed by song time.  When I was offered an opportunity to review the new Shushybye Sleepover Surprise book with song CD, I jumped at the chance because it incorporated both the story and song time of our routine.

(content received from Shushybye)
Shushybye: Sleepover Surprise is a bedtime picture storybook that includes a CD with music kids love.  The best part is, it’s the kind of music that parents find themselves singing along with, too.  Shushybye is a land where its inhabitants (the Shushies) make magical dreams for little girls and boys.  The catch, of course, is if you want to dream you have to go to sleep.

Over Thirty Mommy’s Thoughts 

Shushybye Sleepover Surprise was my first experience with the Shushybyes and I think they are adorable.  The Shushybye dolls are so cute.   The front and back covers of the book are glow in the dark and the CD is a great bonus.  Wiggle Bean is still a bit young for a book of this length so we only make it through the first song (which I already have memorized) and maybe 5-8 pages of the book before she gets restless.  I read through the book on my own and it is a great story.   I like that you can put in the CD and follow along with them reading the story (great for when your voice is just not up to a full story reading) or you can read the story at your own pace.  Over all, it is a great book and I love the song and read along features of the included CD.  My only complaint (and it will not be a problem once Wiggle is a little older) is that you can not fast forward the CD.  It would be nice to jump ahead to continue on where we left off the night before.  Again, this will not be a problem once she is big enough to sit through the entire thing.

    The colorful and fun-filled debut Shushybye bedtime storybook comes with an audio CD with the entire story narrated by Shushybye’s official storyteller Kenny Curtis and the Shushies! Plus, three original Shushybye songs including the rockin’ “Close Your Eyes”!!
