Nighty-Night, Cooper by Laura Numeroff, Lynn Munsinger
When it's time for good night, don't just close your eyes! Mama and Cooper have a sweet surprise. With new songs to sing (you may know the tunes . . . ), Bedtime is special for these kangaroos.
Cooper just can't fall asleep! But Mama has an idea. Setting new stories to familiar tunes, Mama shares six new lullabies with her not-so-sleepy son. Which Kanga will be the first one to dreamland? This merry story—with original lullabies—was created by the talented author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laura Numeroff. The sonorous text is paired with art by illustrator Lynn Munsinger--known for her kid-friendly characters like Tacky the Penguin and Wodney Wat. Pair this with Lots of Lambs for another Numeroff/Munsinger treat!
Laura Numeroff is the author of many books for young children, including If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best, and The Jellybeans and the Big Dance. She lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Lynn Munsinger has illustrated more than ninety books for children, many written by her frequent collaborator, Helen Lester. She lives in Vermont.
