Another bedtime story from the classic children's author, but not as good as Goodnight Moon.
Bedtime story in rhyme with lino cut prints (I think). We meet various animals at twilight preparing for good night time: a donkey "making faces at the skies", a monkey "throwing coconuts to the skies", and so forth.

A very cute bedtime book. The illustrations are clear and nice and the text is short and soothing. Worth the read, but not a favorite.

Simple story, but beautiful illustrations.
