From the creator of the smash-hit Ten Little Ladybugs comes this bedtime charmer featuring a flock of glittering, happy-faced butterflies looking for some sleep.
On lush spreads that burst with bright colors and cheerful critters, nine butterflies are looking for a place to bed down for the night. As they travel among "yellow daisies waving to the yellow setting sun, / in swaying green reeds where green frogs are having fun" and many other scenes filled with dreamily dozing animals, each magical butterfly disappears with the turn of a page. After the last little wanderer rests "with white sheep gazing at the white moon way up high," a starry night sky expands soothingly overhead until the sun comes up and the world wakes again to enjoy "another colorful springtime day!"
Using the Ladybugs format that showcases all nine raised butterflies in its die-cut cover, Good Night, Sweet Butterflies is a sweet story and easy counting/color lesson rolled into one. Little readers will be in awe over the brilliant, color-themed pages that spotlight different animals and flowers of a particular color, and they'll be eager to count the butterflies that appear on each spread. A perfect addition to storytimes or quiet times, this cutie is sure to plant smiles all around. Matt Warner
