A brother and sister dance their way through their going-to-bed routine in this rhyming storybook, assisted by Mom, and eventually Dad. From bath-time to story-time, they engage in the titular 'jammy dance,' turning their bedtime into one long romp, until eventually they're tired enough to go to sleep.

I always find that rhyming texts work very well for younger children, keeping them involved with the musicality of the reading process, even when they don't understand every word, so I appreciated that aspect of Jammy Dance. I can't say this was a particular favorite otherwise, from either a narrative or illustrative standpoint, but it was very sweet, and I imagine will hit the right note for some parents and children. Recommended to anyone looking for rhyming bedtime books that celebrate the restless spirit that sometimes keeps children up. ( )
