A toddler's nightly routine unfolds with an evening ritual on each graduated page, building to a perfectly cozy ending. After playtime is over, it's time for supper, taking a bath, brushing your teeth, and listening to a story. But what comes next? In Petr Horácek's clever board book for very young children, each turn of a shaped page creates a picture that is revealed only at the end, leaving little ones happy to settle into their beds and say good night.

Review quote

This imaginatively designed board book recounts familiar events at the end of a child's day. ... With pleasing collage illustrations and a brief text, this book creates its own soothing bedtime ritual.
--Booklist With his characteristically bright palette, Horacek combines pencil, paint, and collage to walk readers through the steps leading up to a boy's bedtime. ... A well-structured and eminently cozy bedtime read.
--Publishers Weekly
