Praise for The Goodnight Book, by Lori Joy Smith:

 

"This book is the perfect size for side-by-side snuggling with preschoolers before bed. The book begins with the expectation (at least, for adults) that this will be a fun introduction to languages. The first spread reads, 'In English, they say, ‘Goodnight...’' and upon the page turn, 'in French, they say Bonne Nuit.' On the opposite page, a picture shows an adult sitting by a small child tightly tucked in for the night with stuffed animals on either side, a comforting image to go along with the speech bubble: 'Bonne Nuit.' However, the concept is flipped with the turn of two pages when readers are invited to find out what they say 'in some far off places….' Endearing and hilarious creatures may say silly-sounding things like 'Kissy, Kissy,' 'Took a Boo,' and 'Fleep Dreams.' There’s potential for heaps of fun before oodles of sweet, enchanted dreams."

~ School Library Journal - Teresa Pfeifer, The Springfield Renaissance School, Springfield, MA

 

"I loved the gentleness of this tale, the mysteries of the creatures, and the bits of sleepy dream space where enchantment and invention prevail."
