Your Child's Ticket to Slumberville
Young humans (preschoolers, or early literacy readers as they are known in the library trade) sometimes have trouble falling asleep. Bedtime stories help children relax and drift off to the land o' nod, where the Sandman brings (hopefully) sweet dreams.
Coming next month, there will be a new children's picture book to assist caregivers in reaching slumberville with their young charges. Our book trailer highlights the storyline.
MPL Book Trailer #169
Nighty-Night, Sleep Tight, by Jennifer Berne & David Walker (Illustrator)
(Sterling's Children's Books, 2013)
For Ages 3 and Older
Publication Date: March 2013
In a review of Berne's book, fellow author Mike Thaler says that Nighty-Night is a fitting "bedtime buddy" for the classic children's picture book, Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown. That's high praise, indeed, but it is well-deserved. With its rhythmic rhymes and soft, gentle illustrations, Nighty-Night is an ideal bedtime read-aloud.
My Library should definitely order a copy. Casey at the Bat and Crafty Gal know what to do.

P.S. "Good Night," by the Beatles, completes the two-disc self-titled album commonly known as The White Album (1968). John Lennon wrote the song originally as a lullaby for his then five-year-old son, Julian. Ringo Starr provides a solid lead vocal, and producer George Martin's rich orchestration gently and lovingly carries the listener to the end.
