She is shown reading books to her animals, and finally, sound asleep next to them.
Many young children will relate to Princess Baby, Night-Night, as they recognize their own lives in comparison to hers. She may not think she is sleepy, but falling asleep as she tucks her toys in for the night proves that she is wrong. Young children love recognizing themselves in stories they read.

It’s even better if they are read stories they are drawn to over and over again, such as Princess Baby, Night-Night. When your little ones fall in love with this book, they will also be falling in love with reading and story-telling. The illustrations are attractive and fun to look at, and the prose is easy to read and flows as the story draws the reader in. There is not much more that you can ask for from good, high quality, children’s literature.
