‘Before You Sleep’ by Benji Bennett

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009 Book Review by Valerie Jackson

Who is it written for?

This is a tricky question to answer. The contents are a list of how much Adam, who is an angel, loves his family. Any parent who manages to read this without crying may wish to present it to their child at bed time. The book is written by Benji Bennett, who was - and still is - Adam’s father.

A donation goes to the Barretstown charity in County Kildare in Ireland, where children who live with life-shortening conditions or debilitating illnesses have therapeutic education - or what they call “serious fun”. Children and their families visit Barretstown not only from Ireland, but from many other countries, as the programme of activities encourages recovery. See www.barretstown.org if you’d like to learn more about the charity.

Children will love the imagery and the beautifully illustrated pages. Adults will keep re-visiting the book, but only a page at a time.

Bennett, Benji

    These books are lovely, all of my children love them, we read them every night before they go to sleep. The animations are just beautiful. I cant wait for the next book. The authors website also is beautiful and well worth a look - adamscloud.com
