The Lovereading4Kids comment
As every parent knows, a good ‘night night, snuggle down’ book is invaluable, and Good Night Like This is a particularly lovely take on the theme. It’s night-time and the baby animals are being tucked into bed, half page flaps showing the yawning before, and then the fast-asleep after. The colour palette changes gradually from pinky-orange to warm reassuring purples as the pages turn, and there are sparkly stars twinkling on the last page. The rhyming text is a joy too: the cats are ‘snorey and furry, stretchy and purry’ while ducks are described as ‘tickly and feathery, in any old weathery’. ~ Andrea Reece

From the creator of A Kiss Like This and Say Hello Like This, comes a third Like This novelty title - a gorgeous exploration of the many ways animals snuggle down to sleep, and the perfect read-aloud for parents and babies to share at bedtime.
The perfect bedtime read, snuggle down with this adorable new book from Mary Murphy as she invites you into lots of different little snorey, twitchy, cuddly animals' homes as they get ready to go to sleep. With a beautiful sleepy action on every split-page, a lulling, rhythmical text and a cast of cute animal families, this book is sure to emit lots of oooh, aaaahs and ...zzzzzz.
With its 'glow in the dark'..and the limited colour palette is used to great effect, heightening the whole nocturnal drama. Red Reading Hub
