Bookbug's Book of the Month: Good Night Like This by Mary Murphy

Baby Rabbit having a good night cuddle
Category: Bookbug

Feeling yaaaawny, oh so snorey-snoozy? Time to cuddle up close and snuggle down deep. Good night, little one, sleep tight.

From the creator of A Kiss Like This and Say Hello Like This, comes a third Like This novelty title – a gorgeous exploration of the many ways animals snuggle down to sleep, and the perfect read-aloud for parents and babies to share at bedtime. With a beautiful sleepy action on every split-page, a lulling, rhythmical text and a cast of cute animal families, this book is sure to emit lots of oooh, aaaahs and … zzzzzz.

"Good Night Like This is the perfect bedtime read. The text is calming and soothing, with lovely creative language.  I loved the use of words like 'snorey' and 'twitchy'. Snuggle up, and say 'goodnight' with all the animals. The pictures are bold, yet soothing and capture night time perfectly. The rhythmic and lullaby like text makes this a great bed time read for babies and toddlers, but would also be a great choice for expecting parents to read to their bumps."

- Tracy Cooper, Early Years Programme Development Manager
