Thank You and Good Night by Patrick McDonnell

This savvily titled bedtime book is a timely reminder to celebrate the good and happy things that happen, rather than brood on the bad.

With shades of Polly Dunbar’s Tilly and Friends series, Thank You and Good Night — Patrick McDonnell’s first bedtime book — also pays sweet tribute to three children’s literature icons and their creators (the most obvious clues are the characters’ names), while at the same time successfully giving its own fresh spin on the genre with the cutest illustrations.

  
Old or new, there’s no such thing as reading too many bedtime stories — especially when they are as good as Thank You and Good Night, or the ones it has done ample justice to.
