Chronicle Books, 1995 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
It's getting dark.
The stars are twinkling
It's time to go to bed...

So begins this enchanting story of a little girl's bedtime ritual. Young readers -- and their parents! -- will instantly recognize the familiar nighttime process -- pulling down covers, fluffing up pillows, brushing teeth, and searching for sleepytime friends. In a delightful role reversal, each companion, from doll to teddy, is gently scolded for wanting to stay up longer until at last everyone is tucked in and ready to say goodnight. The playful text, perfect for reading aloud, is accompanied by soft, whimsical watercolors. Good Night! is sure to entice even the most reluctant sleepyhead into bed.
