Good Night, Sleep Tight

Mem Fox

Bonnie and Ben's babysitter, Skinny Doug, agrees to read them bedtime rhymes such as "Good night, sleep tight," "It's raining, it's pouring," "This little piggie," and "Star light, star bright." With each telling the kids request one more until Skinny Doug is making up his own rhymes, delightful poems that thrill the excited kids. Eventually all three fall asleep, pleased to have shared the nursery rhymes, old and new. Mem Fox and illustrator Judy Horacek, collaborators on Where Is the Green Sheep? (2004) have created another high-spirited book that sparkles with energy and wit. Ages 4-7
