The Goodnight Book for Moms and Little Ones

Edited by Alice Wong and Lena Tabori, Welcome, $17.95 (224p) ISBN 978-1-59962-084-8
Liberally illustrated with vintage artwork from the likes of Margaret Evans Price and Maxfield Parrish, this 6.5-inchsquare book offers stories, activities, poems, prayers, and more, all tailored to getting ready for bed. The strength of the collection is in its breadth: Anansi stories join Greek and Hindu myths; Paul Simon and Henry Mancini songs rub shoulders with traditional lullabies; and prayers (from many traditions) mix with star charts and cookie recipes. For those not already beholden to nightly rituals, Wong and Tabori offer much choose from—bedtime need never be the same twice. All ages. (Aug.)
