Product description

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.

My 20 month old daughter just loves this story. It's such a great book and the nursery rhymes always keep her engaged. Worth the money!
