PreS-Gr 1-At bedtime, a young rabbit takes the time to remember all of the good things that happened to him that day. The soothing text, reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon (HarperCollins, 1947), celebrates the simple things in life. Each page offers text in English and Spanish, making the book ideal for bilingual children. The crisp, colorful illustrations, ""created using scissors, a glue stick, tape, tweezers, and origami and found paper,"" show cozy domestic scenes. Youngsters see the rabbit sweeping, playing, dancing, singing, and painting. The final page offers a quiet, ""Thank You!"" An excellent selection to share before bed or as practice for early independent readers.
