This Classic Board Book edition of Good Night, World is a charming bedtime book that celebrates the wonders of the natural world.
Good night sun and other stars,
good night Saturn, Venus, Mars.
Elsewhere in the world it’s light,
it’s morning there, but here it’s night.
As the sun sets from east to west, this soothing board book takes children on a magical round-the-world journey to bid good night to the world’s natural wonders, from plants and animals to mountains, oceans, and wide desert plains. Willa Perlman’s soothing, lyrical text combines with Carolyn Fisher’s sweeping illustrations to paint a vivid picture of everything, everywhere going to sleep—including an imaginative little boy.
