Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Originally published in France, this slight but agreeable bedtime book features a young girl who, with pajama bottoms slipping down and one shoe off, rounds up her sleeping companions--an assortment of stuffed animals and dolls. Searching her comfortably cluttered home, the independent child (there is no adult in sight) finds her toys in various spots and affectionately chastises each ("Silly Max. It's not time to eat! It's time to go to bed"). After assembling her menagerie on her quilt, she discovers that her plastic duck is still missing and rescues it from the still-full tub. Simple words ("At last, everyone is tucked in. GOOD NIGHT!") bring Masurel's quiet text to a close. Much more impressive are Henry's timeless, humorously detailed watercolors, which will endear the heroine to bed-bound preschoolers. Ages 2-6.

From Kirkus Reviews

The little girl is about to tuck herself in when she notices the ``everyone'' else is missing. Running from place to place in her cozy timbered house, she gathers half a dozen toys: her bear from the kitchen (``Silly Max. It's not time to eat! It's time to go to bed!''), a doll from the bookcase, a dragon from the TV, and so on. Last is Daisy, a rubber duck; while she's collecting her from the tub the child also uses the potty and brushes her teeth. The role reversal is a grand way to put the child vicariously in charge of the bedtime ritual. Henry's appealing little girl, scurrying from room to room, recalls Lena Anderson's lively, disarming characters. Simple, repetitive, and reassuring; a perfect bedtime book.

The text has a very soothing rhythm.

That said, this book is ideal for bedtime, and would be a great gift for a toddler (AND their parents if it helps everyone get some sleep!)

What a treasure it is to have your child read you " their" version of this book!

GOOD NIGHT is one of the most beautiful and charming nightime stories. The role reversal of Juliette rounding up her stray toys for bed works beautifully. Claire Masurel writes truely special children's books and has a real sense of childhood fun. Plus, the illustrations for GOOD NIGHT are luminous. I look forward to the Christmas book by the same team.

Again the author and illustrator has another awesome book, and I am happily looking forward to any others they put out!

This book is the same little girl and her stuffed animals that where in the book " Christmas is Coming". This book is special because it can be read all year around! And because instead of us parents rounding up our children for bed, the little girl in the book takes our place and finds all her stuffed & loved friends to join her in bed! It's just an adorable book, and one that is easy for 1st time or new readers and even children who can't read can look at the pictures and tell you what they see. What a treasure it is to have your child read you " their" version of this book! Also, watch the apple on her nightstand!

Hope you like this review and when you purchase this book you are pleased that you did!

My daughter got this book for Christmas (she was 3). She and her father read it every night and now she has it memorized. She "reads" it to us each night. The illustrations are very cozy, but the best part is the story. The text has a very soothing rhythm. Each page ends with "Silly ***, it's not time to ***, it's time to go to bed." I think that when my daughter repeats that phrase over and over, it helps to convince her that it's also time for her to go to bed. :-) After hearing it, I feel ready for bed myself! I think this is going to be one of those books that she's going to remember fondly as an adult, much the way I remember "Harold and the Purple Crayon" and "The 5 Chinese Brothers".

I can not say enough about how totally brilliant this book it. The illustrations are charming for a boy or a girl to read. There are great details and wonderful names of the little girls stuffed animal friends who she has to find to get ready for bed. She even uses the potty and brushes her teeth and we love how her shoe is always falling off. My 2 year old always sais "silly mommy" now when I do something out of the ordinary like in the story. We also found the Christmas is comming book to be delightfull as well. The highest rating possible!
