Now in a sturdy board book format, perfect for little hands!

When the sun comes up and the day begins, the little bunny says good day to all the familiar things outside—o the birds in the skies and the bees in their hives, to everything one by one.

And as the sun starts to set, it’s time for the little bunny to say goodnight. Goodnight, kitty. Goodnight, bear. Goodnight, people everywhere.

This previously unpublished text by beloved children’s book author Margaret Wise Brown features her signature word pattern from the classic Goodnight Moon that has soothed generations of children to sleep.

Paired with Loren Long’s gorgeous illustrations, readers will take comfort in the reassuring world of the little bunny and delight at the attention to detail and hidden surprises on every page.

Makes an excellent baby shower gift!

GOOD DAY, GOOD NIGHT follows a bunny on his journey from sun-up to sunset, as he travels around town, plays soccer, and lives his day. The text is accompanied by full page images and includes various other animals, such as a kitten, birds, and bees (as well as other insects).

What I loved: The board book is a great size for little hands, and the word-to-picture ratio is great! There are no more than a few short phrases on any given page spread. The illustrations are gorgeous, and young children will enjoy pointing out the many bugs and animals they see. My toddler loves the bee hive, which at bedtime, includes not only sleeping bees in various places but also a sleeping caterpillar and a parent bee reading a book to a baby bee. These details really take the illustrations to a stunningly delightful and lovely level. The text is very clear, although not printed too large, and is easy enough to read aloud. The storyline is also straightforward and simple for young readers to grasp.

What left me wanting more: That being said, the phrasing of the text is rather awkward in places, as tense and perspective rapidly changes. For instance, from one page to the next, it is second person ("Go live your day!") and then on the next it switches to seemingly third person "When the moon came up the night began." The rabbit also may be the "you" but then in other places, he is also referred to in third person. The switching of tenses also makes the language a little stilted in places (action/present tense to past tense).

Final verdict: Overall, this is a lovely read with gorgeous illustrations that really steal the show. Infants and toddlers will love examining these delightful images for their many thoughtful details. The text is readable and in a great ratio to the images but it is a little stilted in places, although this does not detract from the overall loveliness of the board book.
