Based loosely on the Comden & Green song "I Say Good Morning to the Sun," jaunty verse takes readers to different landscapes in which a small boy is saying so many "good morning"'s that by the time he is done, it's time to say "goodnight!" All are rendered in Barroux's signature droll and endearing style.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Through the beautiful illustrations of Barroux the story walks us through the day of a little boy as he says good morning to the sun and follows him throughout his day as he says good morning to all the animals and to the earth. Soon the boy is saying good morning to a plane and a bus as he rides his scooter through town. He says good morning to everything in sight. But then it is time to say goodnight and the process is reversed and he is saying good night to all the things he said good morning to. The story ends with the boy getting a good night from mom! A very cute story with the repetition of all the different things that were first said good morning to and then saying good night to, if you have ever been asked to read the same book over and over again, which if you have kids you probably have, then you will know that kids love repetition and this book fulfills that love! The story and the illustrations work so well together the story is a simple one of good morning and then a name of something that it is being said to and the same with the good nights and the illustrations though colorful they to are not full of anything that doesn't need to be there they are very simple and minimalist in nature.
