Good Night like This

Mary Murphy. Candlewick, $12.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7636-7970-5
Murphy follows A Kiss like This and Say Hello like This—animal-themed guides to affection and greetings, respectively—with a comforting peek at the bedtime rituals of several species. Once again, half-page flaps create a sense of before and after in each spread. “Tickly and feathery in any old weathery. Good night ducks. Sleep tight... like this,” reads the playful text for one scene. Flipping the flap shows a downy duck snuggling in a marshy nest with her ducklings; as the moon shines above, a frog leaps up to wish them “Good night!” Inky silhouettes combine with sunset shades of purple, blue, and pink as fireflies, bears, cats, and mice all go to bed—building to an invitation for readers to do the same. Ages 2–5. (Feb.)
