A young rabbit notices the objects in and outside his room. He says good night to all of them.
This cute picture book would be a great tool for toddlers and preschoolers to introduce them to how fun reading can be. The illustrations are inviting, the phrases are simple, and the repetition can help children learn vocabulary easier.
One of my favorite aspects (even as an adult) was trying to find the objects in the room as the narrator points them out and says good night to each one. This search-and-find activity would be easy to do with youngsters, which I’m sure they would fully enjoy.
The only improvement I can to make is in regards to the two characters present. It is easy to see that the young rabbit in bed is the narrator, and I’m sure the “quiet old lady” is his grandmother. However, it would be nice to give names to them.
Overall, I feel this is a sweet, simple, yet beneficial book for little ones.
I would recommend this to toddlers and preschoolers to read with their parents, guardians, and/or teachers, as a bedtime story.
