    One thought on “The Goodnight Circle”

    1. Beginning with "day animals" going to sleep this richly descriptive and poetic story continues through the night and ends with day break. This is a perfect bedtime story as it is highlights the silent times: first when they day animals have gone to sleep and before the night animals have awoken and second when night animals have gone to sleep and before the day animals have awoken. Repetition of saying good night and good morning, encourages participation of even non-readers.

    2. This is a short, lyrical tale that describes the sleeptime activities of animals. The illustrations are colorful and nicely detailed and the information provided is educational without being overwhelming. The 'goodnight' theme and repetitive narrative makes this book a calming and soothing tale that is appropriate to read with children at bedtime. We really enjoyed reading this book together.
