Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From A is for Aaaah when a small kitten sighs to Z is for Zipper now zip into bed . . . here are twenty-six ways to say goodnight.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote this book not long after she wrote Goodnight Moon. (She knew a thing or two about putting little ones to bed.)

Now Karen Katz has made it shine with bright and cheerful new pictures. Any sleepy toddler will want to read this over and over . . . until it's really time to say go to sleep!

Synopsis:

"M is for Mother who tucks you in tight; N is for the dark and starry Night." Margaret Wise Brown's tender rhymes and Katz's artwork gently and lovingly illustrate each letter of this bedtime alphabet, first published in 1953. Full color.

About the Author

Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.

Muy pocos escritores de literatura infantil han logrado captar las emociones e inquietudes de la niñez como Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Sus numerosos y ya clásicos libros y grabaciones continúan deleitando a lectores y oyentes de todas las edades.

Karen Katz is the acclaimed author-illustrator of more than thirty-five books, including Princess Baby; Can You Say Peace?; and Mommy Hugs and Counting Kisses, both Child magazine Best Books. Karen, her husband, and their daughter divide their time between New York City and Woodstock, New York.
