What Folks aRE saying
“I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy. A cute read and my daughter acts the same way. Our babies are our babies whether fur or human.”
“My little ones giggled a lot. They really enjoyed it. I personally did not enjoy reading it aloud but the story made me smile. My 5 & 6 yo begged for me to read it again!”
“Must Read. This is also an excellent story for beginning readers; the text is not complicated.
If you have youngsters in the house, you can 100% relate to Papa’s night. We, as parents, have all been there when a child just can’t stay fall asleep or stay asleep. Maybe they are full of energy. Maybe their thirst can never be quenched. Maybe it’s strange noises keeping them awake. Maybe they can’t find their favorite snuggly toy. Or, possibly they need to sleep with you due to a thunderstorm. If you’re like me in the last scenario, you never get any sleep anytime a child sleeps beside you.
Luckily for parents of HUMAN children, a nighttime call of nature doesn’t require a trip outside. Well, unless you’re camping, then you might have to venture outdoors to do your business. But in general, bathroom breaks are an indoor event!
Parenting is tiring work, whether you are parenting a pet or a child. There have been many days when I had to rest my eyes when the sun was still high in the sky. So if you’re a parent, especially to a newborn or sick child, you can relate to their need to take a quick siesta.
Amazon has Bowwow Bedtime by Papa Paws listed for babies – 5 years. I agree with that age bracket. Babies will love the pictures, while slightly older children will love text and images. This is also an excellent story for beginning readers. The text is not complicated.
Speaking of illustrations, I loved the drawings by Papa Paws, especially the cute heart-shaped noses on the doggies. Oh, and the kitty pajamas. BTW: I’m team kitty. They never have to go outside to potty, and they sleep great. When the lights go out, they stay in bed until breakfast.
“Whether you’re team doggie or team kitty, your child will love Bowwow Bedtime by Papa Paws. It might just become their favorite bedtime story.”
The Real-Life Stories Behind the Book
Before I knew Molly Paws, I had won a stuffed wolf toy at a local county fair a few year back. I named him Wolfy and when my wife and I moved to our house, I put him in one of the chairs in the living room across from where I usually sit on the couch. Molly Paws loves to lay on chairs and claimed the one with Wolfy as hers. Molly never treated him like a chew toy and didn’t seem to mind the stuffed toy sharing her space. She even took to snuggling up to Wolfy like a pillow for naps. Wolfy became Woofy during the proofing process because we thought it would be a cute detail to add.
As a part or our routine, I let the girls out each night between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. to potty. Marley has never liked going outside, even when she was a puppy for potty training. Sometimes she would go right away, but most of the time she would sniff around. And sniff some more. Then sniff other things. And then forget that she had to go potty. We’d come inside and she’s be asking to go outside right away because she remembered that she still needs to go potty. While she has outgrown it mostly, she still gets what we call “Puppy Brain” where she goes out and then gets distracted.
