Children's LiteratureLittle Bunny cannot sleep because it is just too bright in her room. Her ever-helpful Papa offers suggestions for an appropriate light for Bunny's room that range from the useful to the ridiculous. For each idea Bunny has an answer: the moon is too bright, fireflies are too busy, the stars too twinkly, and as for the streetlamp, well, it is "too tall to fit my room." Frustrated but patient, Papa walks Bunny back home for Mama's input. Like mothers everywhere, Mama has the perfect solution—a nightlight. Not just any nightlight but the one she had when she was little. Now Bunny sleeps snug and safe in his little bed in a room that offers just the right amount of comforting light that makes shadows of ships on the wall. A familiar nighttime fear is assuaged in this gentle and calming story. Each illustration is bathed in the warm glow of evening and offers reassurance to the nervous child. Simple and sweet, this is a solid addition to any pre-school collection and perfect for bedtime sharing. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 6.
