Review

 

" . . . The book captures the immediacy of a book-lover’s library visit while celebrating all the magic that a library has to offer." - Publishers Weekly

"The library is a favorite place for a lot of kids. And when the kiddies are excited after a big day at the library, it might be hard to settle them down for the night. But author Denise Brennan-Nelson has an answer for that. Modeling her sweet story of the library quieting down for the night after the ever-popular classic Good Night, Moon, Brennan-Nelson has found a winning formula for a new sleepy-time book that will have little ones snuggling in and quieting down as children tiptoe through the library, saying goodnight to everything, from chapter books to cozy nooks, from crafts and art to computers and filing carts. The delightful illustrations by Marco Bucii are filled with fun details to keep the eyes of the listeners on the pages until those eyes start to drift closed as the library quiets down and goes to sleep for the night. There is a nod to reality, though, when the librarian takes the time for one more book, as most youngsters will try to do. This is a charming new bedtime story." - Manhattan Book Review
