I'm a giant fan of Joyce Wan's. As always, this book is the perfect format and length for a little one. The illustrations are gorgeous and the color is bright and vivid.

First sentence: You are my wish upon a star. My bright, shining moon from afar.

Premise/plot: Good Night, Sweetie is a sweet, glittery bedtime board book.

My thoughts: Joyce Wan has written a handful of board books. My favorite by far is You Are My Cupcake. What I loved about You Are My Cupcake was that you could easily, effortlessly sing it to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine." (True you might have to add a syllable or two. But still easy for anyone who loves to sing.) None of Wan's other boo

{My thoughts} – This is one of those must have infant board books. The cover is gorgeous with its embossed title and illustrations.

It has simple one line phrases on each page. It is very colorful and eye catching to little eyes. It has emphasized words with chubby print and adorable illustrations throughout.

I love that this book is short and you can turn the pages rather quickly as my one year old doesn’t enjoy sitting through long winded books, but does enjoy being read
This board book wishes young readers good night using common nighttime objects.

A star, moon, teddy bear, lullaby, mobile, and bedtime story all soothe young readers to sleep. Joyce Wan's bold, bright, and friendly illustrations depict an inviting bedtime ritual, making this the perfect bedtime story for very young readers.

We have probably read this book 100 times. At least twice every night for several months. I had to sneak it out of the house to return it to the library this morning. Berry LOVES this book! When we get to the lullaby page she starts "reading" with me. We're going to have to add this to our personal collection, I think. :)

I received this book from the Goodreads Giveaway. The book is a delightful, lyrical read. It is nicely illustrated with large, simple images that youngsters will enjoy. It's a great board book for children.
Three stars from me, the mom who has to read this cute but not particularly interesting book two or three times per night. Five stars from my toddler, who is obsessed with this book and wants to read it two or three times per night.

Absolutely LOVE Joyce Wan, and all her adorable books! My son memorized all the pages when he was just a couple years old, and I was able to meet Joyce in person! Super amazing!
Always super cute and super sweet, Joyce Wan has done it again!

Adorable, happy illustrations in a style reminiscent of Hello Kitty.
Fans of Hello Kitty and Pusheen will enjoy the art in this book, which is pretty darn cute.

All the cozy elements of bedtime come together for a snuggly goodnight.

Another win from Joyce Wan. Will I ever get tired of her style? Probably not. These books are short, colorful and endlessly appealing. I will say that her "sleepy eyes" look kind of sinister to me... the slightest tilt of a line or curve would make all the difference.
