Subway Line to Bedtime — A Book of Delays

Bedtime.  Sometimes it goes off without a hitch.  Most of the time it can involve negotiations more intense and complex than an international hostage release.  I can’t count the number of times that my girls have tried to bargain for “just ONE more book” or claimed to be “completely starving” as I tried to gently escape out the door.  The author of this book also found herself in the same predicament when night after night her son wanted to talk about the Subway for as long as he possibly could before going to bed.   “Subway Line to Bedtime” is her genius solution to the problem at hand.  It’s the tale of an exciting journey on the New York City subway where the last stop is (hopefully) SLEEP!    Although this book will certainly appeal to New York kids, it really is a story that all will enjoy — even those who have not been to New York, as it’s a nice taste of what it is like to ride on the train — hitting all the major points from Coney Island to the Empire State Building to the Museum of Natural History.  The book is beautifully illustrated and  published independently, and best of all  it’s a story about a  journey towards a destination of peace and quiet.
