Getting ready for bedtime, step by step
It's bedtime for one little boy, and time to say good night. Even the next-door cat and Buster the dog are ready for sleep. Told from the point of view of a mother easing her child through the steps of bedtime, this comforting story is both timeless and universal. Anne Rockwell's lyrical prose and colorful pictures make this a perfect book for sharing at night, over and over again.

PreSchool-K–In yet another good night book, a mother talks her small son gently down to sleep. She describes the evening activities that have already taken place (bath, song, story) and the night-time world outside the bedroom window. Favorite toys are loaded into bed, and out goes the light that is shining too bright Finally, she tiptoes out the door and down to the kitchen, where the family dog is ready to go to sleep as well. The soothing cadence of the language, along with the familiar bedtime routine, makes for a comforting litany that toddlers will enjoy. The hand-printed ink illustrations are peaceful and cozy-looking, with blues and greens dominating the color scheme. The text is slightly awkward at times, with inconsistently applied meter and rhyme. Overall, though, this is a pleasant book that should find a place in larger collections.–Rachael Vilmar, Atlanta Fulton Public Library, GA
