BOOK REVIEW: Night's Nice by Barbara and Ed Emberley

And yellow-eyed cats
All think night's nice
And of course
So do bats.

In 1962 Caldecott Award-winners Barbara and Ed Emberley released Night's Nice, a bedtime book that quickly became a classic. Now reissued in a deluxe gift edition, the Emberley's delightful tale will introduce a new generation of children to the wonders of nightime.

Night's Nice features lilting rhymes that mimic a rocking motion, perfect for lulling a reluctant toddler to sleep. Ed Emberley's detailed nightscapes will engage children and present night as an unthreatening time. Animals, kings and children are shown sleeping while night creatures prowl and play. The final spread invites children to crawl into their own bed and join the story...

So hop into bed,
Turn over thrice,
And whisper this softly:
Night's nice, night's nice, night's nice.
Good Night.
