Review: Bedtime for Batman

Cute bedtime book for Batman fans. (4 stars)

A little boy prepares for bed and it's paralleled to Batman saving Gotham, definitely a good one for fans. While I found the story style cute, I also found it a little bland. It's cute but the type of story where the pictures are telling it, rather than the words. I didn't bother reading it to my 6 year old as I had intended because I think she would have found it a bit too simplistic, and while she likes superheroes it felt very gendered though I can't put my finger on why. That said, I think other kids might like it a lot.
