Here Comes the Night

Written & Illustrated by Anne Rockwell

Henry Holt and Co. (2006)

All children have their own favorite bedtime rituals that help them greet the darkness and night. Join the little boy in this story as he gets ready for bed, see what he does until it’s time to say good night. By then even the next-door cat and Buster the dog are ready for sleep. Told from the point of view of a mother easing her child through the steps of bedtime, this is a book for sharing at night, over and over again.
