PreS

Moore's quiet tale shows that there are many ways to say "good night," as various young animals, with the help of a loving parent, get ready for bed: "How do you say good night, my pup?/How do you say good night?/With a stretch and a yawn,/close my eyes until dawn./That's how I say good night." As they settle down for the evening, a pig listens to a lullaby, a lamb gets a cuddle, and a kitten enjoys milk and cookies. In the final few pages, a human mother and daughter lovingly perform their own nocturnal ritual. There is not much action, but the calming story and repetitive, rhyming text is just right for bedtime sharing. The double-page illustrations are painterly in style, with curving lines and deep-hued tones. The animals wear colorful pajamas and have expressive facial features. Because there is nothing out of the ordinary here, this is an additional purchase.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

Kirkus Reviews
"How do you say good night, my pup? / How do you say good night? / With a stretch and a yawn, / close my eyes until dawn. / That's how I say good night." The title becomes the query that a bevy of loving animal mothers croon to their cherished offspring. From puppies to piglets, a veritable barnyard of anthropomorphic critters take part in the common evening rituals of their young human counterparts. Moore details activities cozily familiar to young readers such as kittens cuddling in their pajamas and lambs snuggling with their favorite blankets. The gentle, rhythmic repetition of the verses-very reminiscent of Nancy White Carlstrom's Jesse Bear books-becomes a calming lullaby to read aloud to sleepy youngsters. First-time illustrator Luebs's artwork features heavily pigmented paintings in a medley of tranquil hues. She indulges in a bit of whimsy, in the form of an inquisitive robin perceptive readers will discover appearing throughout the pictures as a curious observer. This peaceful tale offers a gentle segue to slumber. (Picture book. 3-7)
