Review: Bedtime Bonnet written by Nancy Redd, illustrated by Nneka Myers

Are you or a child looking for a bedtime story with lots of Black hair (covering) love?

Treat yourselves to Bedtime Bonnet written by Nancy Redd, illustrated by Nneka Myers.


Myers’ art is colorful, cute, and so expressive!

Features representation of a Black, multigenerational family living together happily and lovingly in one home.

My favorite page depicts the brother not even bothering to look for the titular bonnet. Redd very clearly drew inspiration from being an older sibling, having an older sibling, or having multiple children. Redd’s writing and Myers’ art work masterfully together to create this hilarious moment. It’s definitely something I’ve done to my younger siblings, as well as something the middle child’s done to the youngest.


“HFE, thank you for creating and sharing so much art and writing for free. How can we help turn your passion and skills into a full-time gig?”

I’m glad you asked!

If you can give me a one-time tip, head over to ko-fi. I’ve also got emotes and icons you can buy.

If you can commit to a monthly tip, you can set that up via twitch or patreon. Twitch also lets you set up alternate payment schedules: every three months and every six months. Ko-fi lets you set up monthly payments now, too!

You can also buy some characters and critters I’ve designed on toyhouse.

And if you have no money to spare (understandable), one way you can help me out is by commenting and using as many share buttons as possible. Commenting gives me feedback on what works y’all are passionate about. Sharing helps expose my works to new people. The bigger my audience grows, the more audience members with money will encounter my works.

Thank you for taking time to read this. I hope you enjoy what you’ve found here.
