‘Pillowland’ by Laurie Berkner – Book ReviewCategory: Books and Music
Pillowland is a fun bedtime book for parents to read to their children at night, and for kids (4-8) to read to/with their parents. It’s filled with imaginative illustrations by Camille Garoche and takes kids on a wonderful journey to a land made of pillows. Author Laurie Berkner is a celebrated children’s songwriter and now her beloved song “Pillowland” can be experienced in this delightful book.
Who wouldn’t want to visit a land where all is soft and fluffy and people wear their PJs all the time? It sounds heavenly to me.
This magical kingdom is a peaceful land where everything is made of pillows, even the dinnerware for the pillow bread and pillow jam. Together with all the pillow trains and pillow cars, this place is the perfect locale to visit before going to dreamland. And, it just might find its way into dreams.
Kids will definitely enjoy experiencing the song through this book. It’s a nice way to end the day. Imagine leaving this world of loud noises and daily troubles and heading to a soft, magical world before drifting off to sleep. That’s what this book is for and will be a favorite bedtime book for preschoolers. It’s a nighttime lullaby with sweet illustrations.
