Good Night, World
Aleksandra Szmidt (Illustrator)
Flowerpot Press (FEBRUARY) Hardcover $7.99 (22pp) 978-1-4867-1560-2
As the stars come out, cuddly critters settle in for bedtime with well-loved blankies and cozy pillows, bidding each other goodnight—or shubh raatri in India, god natt in Norway, and usiku mwema in Tanzania. This book would be an engaging addition to any library on its own or as a companion to Hello, World. Its convenient respellings guarantee that even emergent readers will get the pronunciations right as they explore the languages, countries, and animals of the world.
