There are so many ways to say good night. Pups say it with a stretch and a yawn. Piglets say it with a kiss and a sigh. Lambs say it with a cuddle and a hug. But no matter how many different ways the animals in this snuggly bedtime book say good night, they all have one thing in common: They say it with love. How do you say good night?

Raina Moore spent many years as an editor at a major publishing house before writing her first children's book, How Do You Say Good Night? A native of Los Angeles, she now calls the beautiful borough of Brooklyn home sweet home.
Robin Luebs has been drawing and painting ever since she was a child. It's always been fun but never quite as exciting as illustrating her first children's picture book, How Do You Say Good Night? She lives happily ever after in Urbana, Illinois, with her husband, Craig.From School Library Journal:
PreS—Moore's quiet tale shows that there are many ways to say "good night," as various young animals, with the help of a loving parent, get ready for bed: "How do you say good night, my pup?/How do you say good night?/With a stretch and a yawn,/close my eyes until dawn./That's how I say good night." As they settle down for the evening, a pig listens to a lullaby, a lamb gets a cuddle, and a kitten enjoys milk and cookies. In the final few pages, a human mother and daughter lovingly perform their own nocturnal ritual. There is not much action, but the calming story and repetitive, rhyming text is just right for bedtime sharing. The double-page illustrations are painterly in style, with curving lines and deep-hued tones. The animals wear colorful pajamas and have expressive facial features. Because there is nothing out of the ordinary here, this is an additional purchase.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
