Synopses & Reviews
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!
"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.
