PreS-A simple, quiet story about a boy named Bob at bedtime. After he says good night to the moon and gets ready to go to sleep, Bob notices a set of eyes in the dark. Using his flashlight, he discovers that the eyes belong to his pet fish, who is wishing him good night. Bob continues to notice eyes that belong to different animals, ranging from a mouse to Bigfoot, who say their good nights, until Bob sees "lots of eyes," which are actually stars. The story concludes as the boy closes his eyes and the stars wish him a final good night. Ann Hassett's text is soothing and succinct, making it appropriate for young readers and for read-alouds. For tykes wary of the dark, this book eases children's fears without ever being didactic; Bob calmly shines a light on the animals he notices in the dark, and the animals, in turn, are shown to be harmless as they all warmly wish him good night. John Hassett's illustrations feature deep shades of blue to reflect the darkness of night, which blends with the yellow of Bob's flashlight, creating a green glow that illuminates the pages whenever Bob spies a new pair of eyes. The animals are drawn as cuddly and friendly, even Bigfoot, adding to the story's charm. VERDICT This gentle book is a peaceful bedtime selection and a suitable read-aloud in a bedtime-themed storytime.-Laura J. Giunta, Garden City Public Library, NY
