School Library Journal called Stacey Schuett's stunning authorial debut "a book that is perfect for sparking an interest in geography, emphasizing the amazing concept that at the same moment we are getting ready to sleep, other people are starting a new day." And in a starred review, Publishers Weekly added, "Schuett proves as nimble with words as with a paintbrush." It's a good-night wish that circles the globe.

Beautiful in every way!
This is a great book that has been my daughter and my favorite for a few years. The pictures are beautiful and so is the story!A wonderful book to save for last!
This is one of my favorite children's books, and I have given it many times as gifts. It's particularly wonderful if you know of any young readers in other countries, or who know people in other countries. But I'd think it would also be good for generally inquisitive, curious children. It opens with a baker in London in the wee hours of the morning, and each 2-page spread talks about what is happening at the same time in another country/time zone. The last example is a child going to bed in Boston. The graphics, even in the paperback, seemed particularly good with an overlay of the map of the city/area being mentioned along with the pictures of what's going on. It's just a lovely book, and a great introduction to the idea of time zones!
