Comment on the BRP children’s story: Get to Bed!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Barnyard Version of “Good Night Moon” Reviewed in the United States on July 7, 2020
I recommend “Get to Bed” by Catherine Ann Russell for the way its barnyard update on the message of “Goodnight Moon” (Harper) — the 1947 childrens’ bedtime classic by Margaret Wise Brown.
Like many kids, the domestic animals and wildlife featured in this story take their time settling down. They dawdle over dinner and procrastinate getting to their resting and nesting places.
The book — with lovely watercolor illustrations by Morgan Grace Quist — shows young readers another version of how nature winds down with help from the boy narrating the story.
