Synopsis from Publisher- “It’s been a long day for baby Groot and he’s ready to be tucked in for bed. Just as his eyes start to close, Rocket Raccoon bursts onto the scene! Groot can’t go to sleep yet, there’s a whole galaxy that needs to be defended and they must work together to save the day! Then maybe, just maybe, Groot will finally get the rest he deserves! Each spread includes a tiny Ant-Man, let’s see if you can find him…”
What I Thought- This was a neat book… okay – I am a superhero geek and I was really excited to get this book. I am not sure if it is meant for kids or their parents – because it is great for both! The illustrations are really cute but there are so many Marvel superheros making cameo appearances – parents will love the fun of identifying them. They have a great feeling to them –
Searching for the tiny Ant-Man in each illustration was fun and challenging at times. The story is told in a sing-song rhyme that is pleasing to read. The story is cute as Groot reflects over what he did during the day, saving the galaxy with his friends. With the popularity of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I am sure kids will love to read about Baby Groot going to bed. I can see this one being read over and over again!
I give this book five out of five bookworms!
