Nighty-Night, Sleep Tightby Jennifer Berne, David Walker
Say “nighty-night”-it's animal bedtime all over the world! From the moose in Maine to a Bahama iguana, from the kangaroos in Australia to the pandas in China, sleepy creatures everywhere are ready to rest under blankets of stars. But before they drift into dreams, they send a special kiss to an adorable child--“YOU”--curling up in bed, too. Written in lyrical, soothing bedtime rhyme, this endearing bedtime story will lull youngsters to sweet dreamland.
“Author Jennifer Berne spins a lyrical poem playing on the natural world of sleep in the animal kingdom to soothe a child into restfulness (a much-needed state in this, our over-stimulated world).” Ed Young, Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator
“Jennifer Berne, in her third children's book, has created a timeless bedtime classic. Good Night Moon now has a bedtime buddy.” Mike Thaler, bestselling author of the Black Lagoon Adventures series
"Jennifer Berne's words soar along with David Walker's illustrations in this good night story about animal bedtimes around the world. With its hypnotic rhyme and memorable refrain, it's destined for everyone's read-it-again list.” Freddi Greenberg, editor-in-chief of Nickelodeon/Nick Jr. Family Magazine
