LoveReading4Kids Says

A non-personalised book version of The Sleepytown Express.

Comprising a beautifully illustrated picture book, plus accompanying free audio edition (simply scan the QR code to hear the story, The Sleepytown Express song, or a music-only version of the song), The Sleepytown Express certainly fulfils its aim to “revolutionise bedtime routines for children”. It’s the perfect package of story and song, inspired by the creator’s experience of putting her three-year-old to bed, and her NLP training. What’s more, the book can be personalised throughout.  

As for the story, The Sleepytown Express offers an inviting second-person narrative that addresses the reader directly: “You are standing on a station platform waiting, waiting, waiting…for a very special train, our favourite train.” When The Sleepytown Express train pulls in, you board it and “snuggle down, safe and warm, cozy and dozy.” The language is magically suggestive; the words perfect for calming children in readiness for sleep.  

Non-personalised editions are also available in hardback and paperback formats.   

In summary, for a smoother ride to slumber-town, we thoroughly recommend boarding The Sleepytown Express — it fosters an altogether dreamier pre-sleep experience.

The Sleepytown Express, non-personalised softcover version, is available to buy at tickledmoon.com for £14.95.

The Sleepytown Express is also available as a personalised book - find out more here.
