Thank You and Good Night

Cover: 'Thank You and Good Night'

Staff Review: "Thank You and Good Night" by Patrick McDonnell


In this sleepy-time picture book, Maggie and her rabbit, Clement are getting ready for bed when Jean and his friend Alan arrive in pajamas. And of course it’s time for a wonderful, surprise pajama party complete with bed jumping, chicken dancing, funny-face contest, hide-and-seek, yoga, food and finally sleep. Maggie reads everyone bed-time stories for sweet dreams, ending with kisses and giving thanks for a good day. The star of this sweet bedtime story with rhyming text and simple, relaxing illustrations, is the focus on gratitude.

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book
