At the end of the day, when it is time for bed, every child follows traditions and routines. Good Night, the sixteenth book in the Talk-About-Books series, explores the fun and chores that come with saying good night and going to sleep.
There is always one last game, and toys to put away. A warm bath with lots of bubbles is a nice way to end the day. If you have a bedtime snack, make sure to carefully brush your teeth afterwards. Pajamas are cozy. Story time is a wonderful chance to cuddle up and share a book. And don't forget a good-night kiss before you shut your eyes
Each photograph is realistic and comforting. Children from various familial, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds experience bedtime and are seen in different stages of preparing for bed.
The Talk-About-Books series was designed to enhance a baby's or toddler's first collection of books. Each title in the series explores a specific aspect of the young child's world using real-life photographs that depict a variety of children in different natural settings. This innovative series grew out of a desire to provide children -- all children -- with the opportunity to see themselves within the books they are reading and to better identify with the children and families they are looking at.
The simple text and engaging photographs invite and encourage discussion between adult and child as they have fun exploring the images together.
