How Do YOU Say Goodnight?

What starts out as a seemingly informative bedtime story quickly turns into something much sillier. The first few pages of Lori Joy Smith’s new book, The Goodnight Book, show children around the world being tucked in to bed and told: “goodnight,” “bonne nuit,” and “buenas noches.” The rest of the pages, however, feature silly-looking animals from “far off places” who say things like: “fleep dreams,” “took a boo,” and “darken oy.” The illustrations are what drew me in immediately to this book, but the silliness is what kept me around. This is a great, short bedtime story for some end-of-the-day giggles. It might just even inspire you to create your own, unique way of saying “goodnight!”
