Our daughter's 3rd Grade teacher is having a baby shower and the students are each getting her a book. When I asked her what book she'd like to give her teacher, even though we haven't read it in years, she didn't hesitate for a moment: Good Night, Good Knight. It was both my girls' favorite. And a joy to read aloud. It's sweet, adorable and so lyrically written. Bedtime, let's be honest, not always fun but even on "one of those nights" this book can really put a smile on a parent's face.
We both enjoy this bedtime story, we we both have it memorized & I tell it after lights out as one of the "drifting off" stories. I think it would also be a good learning to read story with the word repetition for practicing recognition as well as night vs knight. We had a story themed baby shower for my sister, each bringing some favorite story books to help build her collection & this was one of mine.
This is a cute story about a knight who ends up putting three little dragons to bed. I happened upon it at my friend's house and shared it with my sister, who has three rowdy little boys. She and her boys loved it too!
As a school library-media specialist, I never get tired of reading and rereading the 6 books in this series to my students! I use them every year to do an author study with 1st graders and then in 2nd we revisit the books, but this time in Readers Theater format and they are loved all over again! Books in the Series: Good Night, Good Knight; Get Well, Good Knight; Happy Birthday, Good Knight; Take Care, Good Knight; A Cold Winter's Good Knight, and A Good Knight's Rest. You will not be disappointed!
It is a wonderful simple story about caring for others set with adorable dragons and a valiant knight. My grandson loves the play on words, and insists that when I put him to bed that I say "Goodnight, Good Knight".
After finding this book in our local library and finding it so much fun to read to my grandsons, I had to buy a copy for our family. I also ordered the rest of the series and we have enjoyed all of them. Last year I shared the books with the librarian at our oldest grandson's elementary school and she ordered several books from the series for the library. This is a fun book to read aloud to a pre-K child or a young elementary age child. It is also a good book for early readers.
My grandson got a castle toy for christmas. I wanted to get him books to go along with it, to help encourage more imaginative play. He is 4...This book was a hit. It has just enough text for a parent and child to share during story time or before bed. The pictures and story are great - The little dragons are soooo cute!! My daughter called and wanted to know "where did you get that book! " (My answer of course was AMAZON ). She said my grandson loves this book and the other one I got him which was Get Well Good Knight. My daughter was impressed with the Penguin Young Readers books and wants to get him more like it.
