Good Night, Little Bookstore

We rated this book:


Every day the bookstore closes as evening settles over the town. There are so many things to say goodnight to — picture books, the bell that rings when the door opens and closes, the cash register that rings for each sale, people visiting from other places, people from the town who stop by often, things left behind by mistake, and, of course, the bookstore cat. The list goes on. This gives a glimpse of all parts of a bookstore and all the jobs people who work there have to do on a normal day, and what they have to do to button things up for closing. There is even a nice nod to recycling. This is a sweet homage to independent bookstores and all the people who work there and love to visit them. Amy Cherrix wrote this charming story in perfect rhyming couplets. This is the kind of book little ones will want to hear over and over, and that’s a good thing because it will quiet young listeners and help them wind down for nap time or bedtime. The enchanting illustrations by E. B. Goodale are in muted colors to compliment the quiet story. Kids will love this.
