Nighty-night, Cooper by Laura Joffe Numeroff, Lynn Munsinger


Nighty-night, Cooper by Laura Joffe Numeroff, Lynn Munsinger

When it's time for good night, don't just close your eyes! Mama and Cooper have a sweet surprise. With new songs to sing (you may know the tunes...), Bedtime is special for these kangaroos. Cooper just can't fall asleep! But Mama has an idea. Setting new stories to familiar tunes, Mama shares six new lullabies with her not-so-sleepy son. Which Kanga will be the first one to dreamland? This merry story - with original lullabies - was created by the talented author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laura Numeroff. The sonorous text is paired with art by illustrator Lynn Munsinger - known for her kid-friendly characters like Tacky the Penguin and Wodney Wat.


As lullabies go, the familiar tunes with the new lyrics may just keep sleepyheads entertained for a few go-rounds, and sleep can wait.

Numeroff strikes just the right balance of silly and sweet as she injects fresh thinking into six musical chestnuts . . . As always, Munsinger's anthropomorphized animals are quietly marvelous, exuding tenderness, sly comedy, and astute observation.

This offering by a well-known duo is sure to become a well-known, well-sung favorite.

A witty conclusion will leave both adults and children smiling.
