It's Time to Say Goodnight by Harriet Ziefert and Barroux (Blue Apple Books)

It's Time to Say Goodnight

Written by Harriet Ziefert

Illustrated by Barroux

Sometimes the simplest ideas can work so beautifully in children's books if all the elements that make a fab read are in place. In "It's Time to Say Goodnight" we meet a happy little chap who wanders around the farm where he lives, greeting all the animals and characters he meets along the way. Out in the urban jungle he even finds time to say good morning to all the trucks, cars, buses, trash men and other things he sees on his travels.

Being such a busy little chap does mean that once he's finished, it's actually starting to get dark - so it's time to say goodnight instead of good morning!

We love Harriet's rhymes and Barroux's simple but beautiful artwork and wonderfully drawn characters.

A fabulous little book full of discoveries, that is destined to become a favourite book for younger readers...

...And with that, we'll bid you a very good night!

Charlotte's best bit: Goodnight to the chickens! Goodnight to the Ducks!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A simple idea, some lovely rhymes and beautifully simple but nicely put together.
