Lyrical text and sweet illustrations highlight children from all around the world engaging in many of the same activities to get ready for bed: taking a bath, brushing teeth, cleaning up toys, and sharing a story before hearing “Good night!”
Subtle messages of inclusivity powerfully shown in the illustrations like a child in a wheelchair, children of different gender, both mum and dad putting babies to bed allows parents to educate on these important values.
When the day's at an end, up to bed we will go, The sky becomes dusky and so the night grows. When the bright golden sun sheds the last of its light, We turn to each other and we say, "Goodnight!"
Young readers will learn how to say “Good night” in several different languages, including Mandarin, Italian, Finnish, Swahili, and French.
