Goodnight Everyone

by Chris Haughton

The sun is going down and everyone is sleepy - the mice, the hares, the deer - but not Little Bear. He tries to get someone to play with him, but everyone is asleep! Finally, he has a great big enormous stretch and yawn, and it's time for a big goodnight kiss from Big Bear.


The visuals are the main appeal of this beautiful bedtime book, which explodes with a fantastic pink-and-purple starry colour palette, as well as having a simple and lulling bedtime story that will help little ones yawn along.
