A sweet good-night story by internationally bestselling picture book author Mem Fox! GOOD NIGHT, SLEEP TIGHT reunites bestselling picture book author Mem Fox with illustrator Judy Horacek, following their collaboration on WHERE IS THE GREEN SHEEP? In this sweet story that's just perfect for bedtime reading, Bonnie and Ben's favorite babysitter tells them nursery rhymes at bedtime--including "It's raining! It's pouring! The old man is snoring"; "This little piggy went to market"; and more. Bonnie and Ben enjoy the stories so much that they don't want to go to sleep; they want to hear each one again! Instead the babysitter tells them new nursery rhymes until, finally, all three of them fall fast sleep.

Review quote

"Bedtime diversions and traditional rhymes are a winning combination here. When Bonnie and Ben's favorite baby sitter, Skinny Doug, offers a bedtime salute of "Good night, sleep tight. / Hope the fleas don't bite!" he embarks on a command performance of seven traditional rhymes. The not-very-sleepy duo keeps him going, as he recites from his personal repertoire: " 'We love it! we love it!' said Bonnie and Ben./ 'How does it go? Will you say it again?' " This catchy refrain follows each of the resourceful baby sitter's rhymes. To their entreaties to repeat each one, Skinny Doug replies, "I'll tell you another / I learned from my mother." After "Good night, sleep tight," Skinny Doug offers "It's raining, it's pouring," "This little piggie," "Pat-a-cake," "Round and round the garden," "This is the way the ladies ride," and "Star light, star bright." The engaging, economical framing text is memorable and sweetly appealing, sure to encourage little listeners to participate. The finite number of rhymes introduced before the baby sitter hustles Bonnie and Ben off to sleep is just right: It's enough for one sitting, where larger collections bring the inevitable negotiation about where to stop. Horacek's simple, solid lines and primary colors are friendly, cheery and almost exuberantly inviting. Sure to be requested and welcome for lapsits and reciting together any time of day." - "Kirkus "starred review
